Collaborate for a win-win
by Cecelia Johnson

I appreciate tribal members' replies
to the KIC controversy. We have some sharp individuals amongst
us and that is reassuring. Yes, there is too much bickering and
not enough leadership. As a leader it's important to stay from
criticizing young upcoming leaders and show them how to resolve
differences. The unrest that the "four block voters"
are showing are symptoms of a problem that can be talked out
at the table. List the obstacles blocking progress and work on
them. Stay away from "I'm right and you're wrong" instead
collaborate for a win-win solution. I have heard both sides and
can validate that there are concerns that need to be addressed.
There is a petition going around that I would rather not sign
as I believe in the IRA Council President. I know this can be
resolved. Go to the table. Show the membership that you do have
a vision of being successful. Communicate and come to an agreement
or a compromise that will satisfy all council members.
