North Star Steering Committee
Duane Campbell, a member of North Star's Steering Committee, recommends guides to dialogue when conversing with allies and building an organization. Dialogue was at the heart of the organizing effort of Paulo Freire and others.
I search for basic agreements.
I search for strengths in your position.
I reflect on my position.
I consider the possibility of finding a better solution than mine or yours.
I assume that many people have a piece of the answer.
I want to find common ground.
I submit my best thinking hoping your reflection will improve it.
I remain open to talk about the subject later on.
I search for glaring differences.
I search for weaknesses in your position.
I attack your position.
I denigrate you and your position.
I defend my solution and exclude yours.
I am invested wholeheartedly in my beliefs.
I assume there is one right answer, and that I have it.
I want to win.
I submit my best thinking and defend it to show it is right.
I expect to settle this here and now.
I seek to silence those who disagree with my position.
