Replying to LO13729 --

The word mastery has a common connotation to it today, and I think it will
with your clients Sherri. According to the 5th disc Fieldbook, the
meaning which still persists in our culture is domination over somthing
else (e.g. "I am your master"). The meaning which you might like to convey
- skill and proficiency, much like a master chef would produce results
with a joy and passion which seems effortless, isn't going to be out there
unless they have already a strong knowledge of how the word is used in the
context that Fritz, Senge et al use it.

OTOH, using Mastery WILL convey a focused message to those who DO
understand its meaning as we know it, and that could be good as well. My
advice is to catch em where they are at!

Hope this helps.
