Creative Mornings

This month’s theme is transparency, and Creative Mornings is welcoming Mayor Jim Watson to the Ottawa stage! Mayor Watson will be speaking a little less formally and a little less politically and share with us the role transparency plays in the civil process.

We are a species that flourishes when we’re seen, when our work matters, and when we connect with and understand one another. What makes all of this possible is the posture of transparency—the willingness to be seen, knowing that transparency may not always be reciprocated or appreciated. Life is enormously better when we're real with each other, and it makes us wonder why we can't always assume this posture. Transparency merely invites us to do the hard work of building meaningful relationships the right way.
