12 Useful Things
Over 12 years of work, enabling thousands of dialogues on highly complex and challenging issues, we’ve learned a thing or two. Or twelve, actually.
Here are 12 useful things you can do that will make for fundamentally more useful conversations. They aren’t easy…but then again, if it were easy, you wouldn’t be here poking around for ideas, now would you? 😉
6. Diverge, diverge, diverge THEN converge. Be gracefully persistent throughout.
7. Conversations that matter take time to emerge; they follow on the heels of trust.
9. Change. Is. Uncomfortable. But opening space helps.
10.?Hold hope. You’ve been there before; you know there’s another side. They may not. Hold hope.
11. Always start from a clear outcome and design backward. Always.
