Om boka

"I believe we can change the world if we start talking to one another again."

With this simple declaration, Margaret Wheatley proposes that people band together with their colleagues and friends to create the solutions for real social change, both locally and globally, that are so badly needed. Such change will not come from governments or corporations, she argues, but from the ageless process of thinking together in conversation.

Turning to One Another encourages this process. Part I explores the power of conversation and the conditions simplicity, personal courage, real listening, and diversity that support it. Part II contains quotes and images to encourage the reader to pause and reflect, and to prepare for the work ahead convening truly meaningful conversations. Part III provides twelve "conversation starters" questions that in Wheatley's experience have led people to share their deepest beliefs, fears, and hopes.
