As I wrote couple days back in the blueprint of our mission statement, dialogue is at the core of what we do. There are couple of books that have inspired a lot in the field of Dialogue. E.g. William Isaacs’ Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together as well as Peter Senge’s The Fifth Discipline. Moreover, we can go back to Bohm’s Dialogue, and then we are talking! Here’s a great illustration by Pernan Goni about the four disciplines for dialogue as stated by William Isaacs in his seminal book, the dialogue and the art of thinking together. I got the book back in 2003 from my Godmother and it’s been with me ever since.
