The Story Behind the Dialogue Flowchart

Following the 2016 election, it was clear that people were having trouble connecting across the political divide. I could see that people weren’t necessarily applying the skills that would help them achieve their goals for dialogue. The idea of the flowchart is to help people make intentional decisions about whether they want to engage in dialogue and, if so, how to do so effectively. Although the flowchart has not yet resolved all political conflict in the U.S., I like to think that’s simply a problem of limited distribution, so feel free to download the flowchart and help get the word out!
