I know something good about the Community Crisis Center

I am preparing a Team Building Program for staff at the Community Crisis Center in Elgin, Illinois. I have been working the amazing staff  since 2000. It always is a pleasure and a privilege to share my Brain Color approach with the staff to help improve their understanding of each other and the woman, children, and families who are crisis due to domestic violence, sexual assault, or economic/financial difficulties.

The Community Crisis Center is one of the oldest domestic violence shelters in the state and was instrumental in organizing both the Illinois and National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The mission of the Community Crisis Center is to provide Safety, Hope, Advocacy, Respite and Education for those impacted by crisis and violence in the Fox Valley Region and Illinois.

I included the anonymous poem (which is a favorite of mine from my days at Mac-Do Lodge Summer Camp for Girls) in the team building workbook because it encourages understanding and the appreciation of others’ Praiseworthy Gifts and their Yellow, Blue, Green,and Orange Brain Colors!

Wouldn’t this old world be better,
If the folks we meet would say:
I know something good about you,
And then treat us just that way!

Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy,
If each handclasp warm and true
Carried with it this assurance
I know something good about you!

Wouldn’t things here be more pleasant
If the good that’s in us all,
Were the only thing about us,
That folks bothered to recall!

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy
If we’d praise the good we see!
For there’s such a lot of goodness
In the worst of you and me.

Wouldn’t it be nice to practice
This fine way of thinking too;
You know something good about me,
I know something good about you!

Don’t keep it a secret, be sure to tell others, “I know something good about you!
