Christa Tinari and Catrina Cuevas


A conversation or discussion between two persons to reach an agreement

An exchange between a person and something else

An exchange of ideas and opinions

Adapted from Webster’s online dictionary and

  • Any conversation that is characterized by a search for understanding, rather than aiming for agreements or solutions
  • The purpose of Dialogue is to provide an opportunity for all participants:
    • 1) to really express themselves
    • 2) to really be heard
    • 3) to develop and deepen mutual understanding and respect and
    • 4) to learn about the perspectives of others’ and explore and reflect on one’s own feelings and views

“…a conversation structured as a competition of participants and views.

It involves stating a starting position, rebutting opposing positions, defending one’s starting position with counter attacks, and seeing who wins.

One listens for points of disagreement, protects one’s starting views, and acts in an adversarial manner”

Poliner and Benson

Food for Thought

Judgments of others are alienated expressions of our own unmet needs.

~Marshall Rosenberg

The forms of speaking we have available to us regulate the forms of thinking, feeling and meaning-making to which we have access, which in turn constrain how we see the world and act in it.

~Kegan & Lahey
