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)

Special Offer for NCDD Members

Last Monday (Jan. 15th), I sent a message out to all NCDD members announcing that NCDD is transitioning from a free membership structure to a paid membership structure (with a pay-what-you-can option).  We are giving free copies of the newly-released 2nd edition of The Change Handbook to the first 200 members to pay the full annual fee (it’s not too bad – only $50 for individuals or $100 for organizations). The checks have been pouring in, which is wonderful, but we still have plenty of […] (continue)

Peace Tiles from NCDD 2006

Peace Tiles organizers Nil S. Navaie of Arts for Global Development and Lars Hasselblad Torres of Peace Tiles were on hand during our conference in San Francisco as part of our Arts programming to provide a creative resource for participants, allowing for a different and unique way to process the day’s intake. They have collected photographs of the tiles created in a photo set on Flickr. (continue)

Open Space – An Outstanding Place

Originally posted by Loretta Donovan at the 2006 NCDD Conference… What do you say as you end an hour and a half of wonderful, engaging conversation on dozens of compelling topics? A few comments from those who came to the Open Space: As new people came in, to what degree do you bring them up to date? Open Space is the juiciest part of every conference. Would NCDD allow a full day of OS instead of some of the workshops? Be Prepared to Be Surprised […] (continue)

New Orleans Resilience and SynCon

Originally posted by Chris Heuer for the 2006 NCDD Conference… Friday afternoon’s session was very reassuring for me personally as I am very concerned about the future of this great American City – now I have a much greater sense of hope after meeting Julianna Padgett, Patricia A. Wilson, and John Zwerver. (Download Julianna’s presentation here) Given the current complexity of the situation there and the need for bringing together all the different voices, it seems the SynCon process (link to book by Barbara Marx Hubbard) is one […] (continue)

Saturday Morning Reflective Panel

Originally posted by Beth Kanter for the 2006 NCDD Conference… Description An opportunity to hear from five leaders in the dialogue and deliberation community, and to see them engage in dialogue with one another around trends in the field and trends in the world that are or will impact the field. Spoken word is an artform that allows different poets to come together around do poetry around social justice.Drew Dellinger and Danielle Drake-Burnette from Poets for Global Justice. (I captured some video and audio clips and will create the link as […] (continue)
