Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
So often, when we try to truly talk with someone, we walk away from the conversation unsatisfied. Dialogue, the art of thinking together, helps eliminate those anticipated scripts we use, and invites a spirit of inquiry and improvisation into your communication. Perhaps even more important, it provides a setting to develop your emotional intelligence--the ability to listen openly to points of view that contradict your own without reacting defensively. William Isaacs says, that to do this "requires a container, a vessel in which all the intensities can be held. You know you’ve reached a dialogue when people can express what they think and no one tries to change anyone else." By observing the processes behind our thoughts, we gain the power to transform them. (hosted by Michael Toms)
