What is Dialogue?
Dialogue is a process that enables teams and individuals to get on the same page, generate common goals and create sustainable change together. It helps participants understand each others' differences and similarities and allows for an open exchange that maintains the dignity of all. Dialogue is an innovative way of communicating. In Dialogue, there is no convincing others of our point of view. Dialogue, unlike debate, is about listening to the truth in other's viewpoints and coming up with a collective meaning that all members of the group can work with and appreciate.
Why Does it Work?
The Dialogues work because their foundation is based on a set of "tools" developed by The Dialogue Consultants that give participants effective skills for communication while increasing their self-awareness. The tools provide participants with ways to express their feelings and beliefs, while maintaining a productive, positive discussion. Moving through emotions to constructive dialogue, participants are free to think creatively about their work environment and their lives. Participants are empowered to ask themselves, "What needs to happen here, and what is my responsibility?"
