  • Healing a Nation Through Common Ground Communication

    David Bennett, Owner, Common Ground Communication

    It is apparent over the last few years that the United States is deeply divided. There are not only many different perspectives but, those perspectives are often rigidly held. But, what can be done, and more importantly what can each of us do to bring the people of this country together? MORE >

    I believe it starts with each of us and our communication with our family, friends, and work colleagues. To bridge differences and promote understanding of different perspectives, we need to find common ground with one another. We need to find commonalities not just differences. We can start a dialogue with people we disagree with by first finding the areas on which we agree. It is clear that there are more areas on which we agree than on which we disagree, but we often lose perspective when someone challenges or disagrees with us.

    When we put this to work in our communication we develop "connections" with one another. This connection leads to a greater respect and understanding of diverse perspectives.

    I've seen this approach make a tremendous difference with people and groups. And it's not hard for people to adopt. They already have the skills needed. It's just matter of applying some existing skills differently, enhancing other skills, and putting it all together with every person with whom they interact in every conversation.

    I share my perspectives on how common ground connections can help bridge differences and bring people together with participants at conferences and meetings. I work with individuals and companies on identifying and resolving communication issues and improving existing communication skills.

    Now more than ever we need to communicate in such a way that we establish common ground connections with everyone. I hope to work with you in helping you do that.

  • The Voice

    Willie Williams, CEO, Inspire The Fire Inc.

    What is the difference between an employee and a leader? One comes to do a job, the leader comes to make the job better. Today everyone wants to be a leader but unfortunately, not everyone understands the key to becoming the kind of leader that others are would like to follow. MORE >

    Many people follow leaders because they HAVE to follow them, but that creates an environment or culture of obligation, which leads to many bitter and unhappy people. However, when you lead in a way where followers WANT to be led you will have a culture of excitement, joy and see a MAJOR increase in productivity.
