Making Assumptions – and let go of them

We form opinions by making sense of facts and our interpretation of these. Forming your perspective is needed in order to debate, explain matter or decision making. However, it also can lead to limited understanding of the other. Become aware of your own assumptions and learn how to go about this when other perspectives enter a discussion.

To what extent do we make assumptions and frame our observations to understand reality? How is it possible that we observe the same facts and still end up in conflicting opinions? Reflect on your thought patterns in relation to someone else’s, practice ways to work with opposite opinions and experience how dialogue skills can help you to diminish the negative effects of assumptions.

By being in connection through good conversations, we can truly contribute to complex transitions. This monthly dialogue community meet-up helps to increase your dialogue knowledge and skills. This session is hosted by WUR alumna and dialogue-friend Sigrid Smeele.

Anyone working or studying at WUR can join the community or join any of these individual meet-ups. Registration is not needed but appreciated (by sending an email).
