The World Cafe

Greetings for the Pegasus Conference  in Seattle. I wanted to share The World Café today.  The following principles are great to help facilitate meaningful communication in your place of work.  World Café is a global network of leaders, consultants, and others committed to positive whole system change. They excel in creating great spaces for meaningful communication in the work place. This is a research-based and field-tested set of diverse principles that can help people in diverse settings develop their capacity to collaborate more effectively to shape their common futures.  An innovative yet simple process, based on these design principles, for hosting effective strategic conversations about “questions that matter.”

*Clarify the context
*Create hospitable space
*Explore questions that matter
*Encourage each person’s contribution
*Cross-pollinate and connect diverse perspectives
*Listen together for patterns, insights, and deeper questions
*Harvest and share collective discoveries
