When you speak to a person in private about a hurtful or oppressive thing they’ve done or said. It is a less reactionary approach when it comes to conflict.  

Use when:

  • There is an opportunity to explore deeper, make meaning together, and find a mutual sense of understanding across difference.
  • We are seeking to understand or learn more.
  • We want to help imagine different perspectives, possibilities, or outcomes
  • It provides for multiple perspectives and encourages paradigm shifts
  • the focus is on reflection, not reaction Is not just a suggestion with an uptick (Don’t you think you should…?)
