What is the art of dialogue?

The course The Art of Dialogue aims at fostering the art of thinking together by improving dialogue as a stance. It enhances the participant’s competency to build consensus and commitment for implementation and outcome-orientation. It also equips the participants with a range of pragmatic and effective facilitation methods, that enables them to navigating the unpredictable, sometimes conflictual, dynamics of multi-stakeholder engagement processes. The Art of Dialogue is the ability to make things happen through and with others in a way that enables an ongoing constructive conversation between all actors. It is built on the general approach to facilitation, but it does not necessarily require an outside person to do the facilitation. The skills of facilitation need to be available for every person in the group. Particularly people in leadership positions need to acquire facilitation skills when they call for meetings, ask for feedback, try to understand a difficult situation, or want to help other people identify their challenges.
