The Art of One-to-One Conversations for Effective Organizing
Many of us have heard or even believe that one-to-one relational conversations are important to our work of organizing with our communities so that we can be part of the change we want to see in the world. But why, exactly, is this work so important? How does this intentional, spiritual work of developing relationships grow our power for organizing? How does such an intentional practice of developing relationships change us, change others, change our communities, and change the world?
This online gathering (Zoom technology) will engage us in these larger questions of developing relationships, enable us to review characteristics of powerful one-to-one relational conversations, demonstrate a model one-to-one conversation during the gathering, and give everybody the opportunity to practice a short one-to-one conversation and reflect upon the experience afterwards. Together we will cultivate the art of one-to-one conversations for effective organizing capable of accomplishes lasting change
