1. The Advocacy Trap
Learn why authentic dialogue is the answer to the polluted public square, not just more facts or combative polarization.
2. Facts Don’t Change Minds
Narrative failure has contributed to a world awash in propaganda. The solution lies in shifting public conversations from matters-of-fact to matters-of-concern.
3. Silencing Voices
Democracy is threatened when language is manipulated, when everyone seems biased and objective speech itself is under assault. Instead of taking action on many serious problems we are engaging in militant culture wars.
3. Listen Deeply
Transformation starts to happen when we are encouraged to think about possibilities, when we go where the change movement is already happening and when we follow the energy.
4. A New Narrative
Authentic storytelling is an essential leadership tool in creating agency — the ability to access the emotional resources we all need to stand up and be counted.
5. From The Heart
Greed, selfishness and egotism are destroying our environment. The antidote lies in developing our sense of compassion and warmer hearts.
