'How can dialogue help to address conflict?'
Based on Robert R. Stains, Essential Partners
We do not change through argument, but through humanizing stories.
Through empathy, which is the emotional embodiment
of someone else’s reality and truth.
Create Communication Agreements
Support a Structured Process
Reflection: times to pause and integrate
Boundaries: enable more openness via less fear
Empowerment: provides choice and control
In contrast to reaction to fear or threat,
Reflection makes us human andempowers us
to think and make choices
and create connections
Mindsight - Knowing what is going on in ourselves:
More constructive communication
