Dialogue Communication Network
Bill Boynton, Teacher, United States, Member
There is a communication dilemma that says "I know you think you understood what you thought I said, (or wrote), but I am not so sure that what you thought I said (or wrote) was what I really meant".
My point here is that we need to find a way for communication and the resulting information to be more understandable, more relative and aligned around organizational problems.
A way to approach this problem is to establish a "dialogue" communication network as the process for disseminating information.
Dialogue works on the premise of "listening" with the intent to understand, and addresses clarification and mutual interest and input with building consensus and understanding.
If ever we had organizational and/or a societal problems we have found them.
It isn't that we can't fix our problems, it's we can't understand them....
