Joining a group to put on an AA workshop was a springboard for my emotional growth. How great that there’s a goal, a beginning and an end. It’s all the brainstorming, tolerance, compromising, and accountability mixed in the middle that makes it memorable.

We learned about surprising depths of talent in our group. Talents that are not obvious during regular meetings. Everyone inside and outside the group was willing to help and give it their very best.

Brainstorming and discussing possible topics is part of creative group development. Sharing ideas about how a topic might be approached, what is topical considering the societal cimate, or one group members struggle with a concept. Discussions navigate a group towards a topic.
