Last week’s Confab Call on the Group Works Deck

We had another great NCDD “Confab Call” last week, and if you couldn’t join us we highly recommend you listen to the audio recording. The call featured NCDD members Tree Bressen and Sue Woehrlin, who led a discussion about the innovative Group Works card deck and the collaboratively-developed pattern language it conveys.

We had 33 participants, many thoughtful comments (during the call and in the Google doc we used as another stream of engagement), and experimented with using the deck as a tool for learning about its potential.

Use the link below to listen to the audio recording of the main segment of the call. We think you’ll find it worth a listen!

    I was on this call and enjoyed it (and enjoyed helping develop the deck). We just happen to be using the Group Works cards to support learning about what makes for good dialogue in the Let’s Talk project on dialogue and economics:
