“Many of us believe that our role in the world is the source of our power. While the power of role provides a vehicle to get good things done, true power is funded by personal work. Without the development of the core of who we are, we are lost when the role disappears or diminishes.”

— Patrick O’Neill, Founder of the Four Directions
