Dialogue: A Way to Live

REVISED EDITION

12%+

What if at least 12% of the population practiced the kind of dialogue described in this book? Read this book to discover ways this challenge can become a reality. 
When we listen for what is meant and respond empathetically to what we hear – when we ask questions to clarify and draw out the thinking of others – when we resist being defensive – when we acknowledge that on which we disagree but seek to find that on which we do agree – when we are not trying to persuade but discover – and when we find ourselves changing our views or positions in light of what we are discovering — we are in a transformational dialogue environment.

In his latest book, Irving Stubbs explores many good reasons to use dialogue.

  • It is a way to stretch our levels of consciousness.
  • It strengthens the courage to speak and share.
  • It bonds participants as persons, not as objects.
  • It creates bridges to deal with organizational and societal issues.
  • It builds communities of mutual trust and interests.
  • It builds solutions to challenging issues.
  • It opens us to God’s Spirit.
  • It energizes worldviews based on shalom that includes peace, harmony, wholeness, justice and joy.

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.
