everyone an A
So I give everybody an A in the class. Everybody gets an A.
the A is a completely different paradigm. It is the paradigm of possibility.
And we say that the A is a possibility to live into, not a standard to
live up to.
Ben Zander: Rather like a fish swims in water, the environment of the class is an A Joy, relief, ease, community, non-competitiveness, encouragement, spontaneity, risk-taking: that is the environment of the A.
Ben Zander(conducting): Fine. Let’s stop. Wonderful playing. Wonderful playing.
Ros Zander: Everybody can make a difference. From any place that they are sitting in, from any role in an organization. They’ve been thirsting to feel about themselves that they can make a difference. All of us have encountered being stopped in something when we wanted to contribute in some way. And somebody stopped us. And then we were cautious about the next thing we said, and you know, we get a few of those, and it’s pretty ingrained. So now, people look out and say, “I have to really, really, really, get to know someone before I’ll trust them. Nonsense!
