Send Us Your D&D Stories!

We all know the power that stories hold to inspire people and help them understand complicated concepts (among other things). Many of us have talked about how we need to do a better job sharing our stories in this field, so that more people can understand why dialogue and deliberation are so important – and so desperately needed today. Please think about what stories you can tell about your work in this field. I’m working with Matt Leighninger (Director of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium) to collect […] (continue)

Discounts for NCDD Members on Some Great Trainings!

As you may know, NCDD is switching from a totally free membership to a paid membership (with a pay-what-you-can/free option). One of the ways we’re trying to ease this tricky transition is by providing some great benefits for fully paid NCDD members – including discounts for a whole bunch of great trainings and courses. NCDD members who pay the full membership fee can take advantage of discounted rates (mostly 20%) for the following upcoming trainings: The Center for Strategic Facilitation’s Group Facilitation Methods Course – April […] (continue)

An Appeal to all Members of the D&D Community

If you are based in the U.S., I’d like to ask for your help with an important project. The vast majority of members of congress are not aware of the expertise and skill our community has to offer. They do not know how to tap into the dialogue and deliberation community to serve the purposes of good government – or even that there is such a community.  One project spearheaded by NCDD members Kim and Barnett Pearce aims to begin to change this. If you’re […] (continue)

The Heart of the Matter

I returned from a 3-day Dynamic Facilitation workshop last week inspired, challenged, and healed. For those unaware of the method, as I was prior to attending Jim and Jean Rough’s workshop in Port Townsend, let me vouch for its unique place on our D&D toolbelts – or, rather, its own color on our D&D practioner palettes. DF is different, as it relies on intuitively following the energy of the conversation and purposely probing participants to get at their root concerns and ideas. Please do check […] (continue)
