Billy Ivey The Surreal Power of a Napkin
Garnering intention is about storytelling. Garnering intention is about inviting someone into a conversation...allowing them to become a part of what you're talking about, a point of view, a perspective that you have on the world, on a product or on the organization or whatever you're talking about.
