Dialogue is about examining identity with curiosity instead of category. A strong facilitator can break down barriers of "good or bad", "us and them", or "this or that" in a conversation to unearth the multiplicity and complexity of who we are, what we believe, and why.
In other words, we recommend a better question to explore difference. Rather than asking "Which witch are you?", we ask, "What does witchiness mean to you?"
When a sense of threat and fear pervades a group, especially on matters of deep importance, people can talk past one another rather than with each other. In this fall's Power of Dialogue workshop, you'll hone the skills to approach and facilitate difficult conversations constructively, with more confidence and understanding.

The Power of Dialogue is Public Conversations' flagship workshop because it's at the heart of our work, and it's the teaching joy of our practitioners. You'll learn how the right question can unlock new understanding, how to combat "emotional hijacking" when feeling threatened, and how to put new skills to use with a highly interactive facilitation.
