What do top organization like IBM, Boeing, General Motors, and Bristol Myers Squibb have in common?

They have all used the Reciprocity Ring Exercise developed by University Sociologist Wayne Baker, and his wife Cheryl, at Humax.

The process involves groups in which the members ask for something important to them in their personal or professional lives. Requests are put out to the group and all participants make connections, offer introductions to contacts, or give other, more tangible help with achieving the member’s goals.


Check out the Reciprocity Ring Exercise and consider using it to help others in your professional or personal world solve problems and achieve their dreams.

  1. Hello John, and thank you for contacting me.
    The quote you refer to was published by The Quotable Coach in 2012. All I can tell you now is that when we found it, it was attributed to Patricia Clifford, who is a TV film producer. Here is a link to the only information we have about her: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0166673/

  2. I’ve been trying to find out who wrote: “The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won’t wait while you finish the work.” I came across your website and you attribute it to Patricia Clifford. But, when I look up Patricia Clifford, I don’t know if it’s a man or woman. And, I don’t know if he/she is alive or dead, or anything about him/her. I don’t know the context of the quote. Can you enlighten me, since every other place I see this quote, it’s attributed to Author Unknown. I’m writing a book right now and would like to use that quote, but I need more information to guide me in getting any necessary permission.
