About EDIN Associates Dedicated to the art of cultivating "space to grow"

Why Cultivate Space to Grow?

    We can choose to build innovative, accountable work environments where we develop people to do the right thing, share knowledge, and enjoy everyday life. The phrase "Space to Grow" comes out of our work with learning groups at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center where we are involved in a variety of cutting edge programs. The phrase was coined by program managers who are current members of a creative learning group (community of practice); these managers support the NASA missions and use the phrase "space to grow" to convey the essence of their experience working together.
