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. This revised edition shows leaders how to use dialogue to bring about positive change in business, organizations, academia, government and society as a whole. (HARDCOVER)
