深度匯談是一種深層的對話,讓我們探索自己是如何架構與詮釋自己的日常經驗。深度匯談是在互相尊重的環境中保有持續地探詢。 深度匯談創造了一個團體的空間,在這個空間中,團隊成員能夠探索一些未曾討論過的議題、安心的表達想法與感覺。深度匯談能夠帶領你及團隊成員走出經常導致誤解與溝通不良之癱瘓現象如:對/錯、我們/他們、贏/輸。


  • 深度匯談建立豐富與堅強您的生活與工作、個人與生命的關係

Conversation as a Core Learning Process

13 evening, 14, 15 April 2007

Conducted by the Institute of Cultural Affairs Taiwan

Dialogue is an in depth conversation into the assumptions that structure and interpret our everyday experiences. Dialogue is a sustained inquiry held in an environment of mutual respect. Dialogue creates a group field in which members explore potentially un-discussable issues and are able to express their thoughts and feelings without fear. Dialogue moves a group beyond polarized “right/wrong”, “us/them”, “win/lose” thinking that leads to misunderstanding and communication breakdown.
Dialogue produces a deep shared understanding that ultimately helps a group make faster decisions that are better informed, with a stronger commitment to follow through than usual team learning approaches which focus primarily on problem solving and decision making..

For individuals

  • Dialogue helps create rich work-life relationships and strong personal-life relationships.
  • Dialogue increases access to innovation inside your organization.
  • Dialogue skills help you to advocate ideas in ways that generate understanding and commitment.
  • Dialogue helps develop buy-in instead of defensiveness and resistance.

Introduction to Dialogue offers the skills and motivation to work through tough issues in ways that bring shared understanding and commitment. It builds trust, strengthens relationships, and secures the best thinking as well as new cooperation of all parties.

During the six sessions we review the theories about why dialogue is such a powerful personal and team-learning tool. We use ourselves as a learning team to develop practical dialogue skills for use in your own organizations and communities.
Friday Night: (1 session) Skills in Listening + Awareness: As we build a sense of community, concepts of dialogue and organizational learning are experienced and understood.

Saturday: (3 sessions) Practicing Inquiry and Advocacy: We introduce a practice “clearness committee” in small groups with actual individual issues as a focus.

Sunday: (2 sessions) Fishbowl and Operational Skills: We introduce practical examples of dialogue in the workplace, demonstrating as individuals and teams how to utilize dialogue in everyday situations.
