Team Takes on Kasi:

Resource gatherer and sharer 

Careful, courageous, creative, curious 

Leads people to their own leadership – always asking “what can you do”– giving others agency  

Not afraid of ideas – gets the ideas out, using action-based procedures, by open wrangling with and reining in ideas, and encouraging movement 

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the thinks I can; and wisdom to know the difference.  

—the Serenity Prayer
