OUR THEORY OF DIALOGUE

Successful dialogues — ones that have the power to positively impact lives – require a kind of listening that is rare today. Addressing climate change and poverty and the ensuing increased competition for land, water and energy will require unprecedented levels of collaboration. Such collaboration begins with dialogue.

Our teams combine an array of facilitation techniques drawn from our years working globally. Successful dialogues start before the meeting does, by making sure everyone who needs to be there is there.
