Communicating differently with one another provides us with different solutions. In practise, applying dialogue often means slowing communication, while enhancing the chance of generating change. It is the key determinant to the power of change within processes.
This dialogue can be seen as a form of active exploration based on respect and admiration. Within the appreciative approach, dialogue can be seen as a way to strengthen and maintain the bridges between people. Otto Sharmer indicated how generative dialogue triggers the power needed for co-creation. This form of communication generates new knowledge and provides meaning to the work conducted. The fundamental perspective remains centered on “people making processes together” and on “meaning emerging between people”.
Dialogues stimulate the mutual appreciation of every voice. They enhance the ownership within the process of change.
