Blog Post: Meetings serve two purposes – the second too often gets overlookedDavid Gurteen

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 10:38:25 +0000

By David Gurteen

Most meetings or conversations have a preplanned outcome. It may be to explore an issue, to make a decision or to solve a problem.

But there is always a second subliminal purpose which we often overlook.

That purpose is to engage each other, improve relationships and foster a sense of community.

I have written more about this idea in my blook.

A big thanks to Peter Block for bringing this insight to my attention.

Blog Post: You'll be surprised at the strongest predictor of how long you will liveDavid Gurteen

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 10:15:59 +0000

By David Gurteen

I will be 70 years old later this year and would love to make it to 100. I thought that mainly meant some good genes, eating well, exercising and a huge dose of luck.

Yes of course, those things matter. But I was amazed to see the top two predictors of a long life in this TED talk by psychologist Susan Pinker:
  1. frequent face-to-face interactions
  2. close personal relationships

So I may be in with a chance!

It's also another good reason for us all to talk more face-to-face, build strong relationships and community.

You can find the full talk here on TED.

Blog Post: If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.David Gurteen

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 09:51:13 +0000

By David Gurteen

I love quotations and you can find a huge selection on my website. You can also subscribe to receive one at random each a week or day if you wish.

Many of them have a connection in some way. Here are two of my favourites, separated by over 400 years.

There is no conversation more boring than the one where everybody agrees.

If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.

There is psychological phenomenon called groupthink that makes "thinking alike" more likely in a group discussion.

Blog Post: I am sorry I don't know enough to have an opinion on thatDavid Gurteen

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 09:44:15 +0000

By David Gurteen

I have long thought that in our modern day culture it is almost illegal not to have an opinion on an issue regardless of whether we know anything about it or not.

Confident ignorant people argue with equally confident ignorant people. We all do it.

In the UK for example, how much does any one of us really know about the impact of a complex issue such Brexit - but we all have strongly held opinions.

I've long been meaning to write about this but Omid Safi has beaten me to it in this article The Wisdom of Saying “I Don't Know”

Blog Post: We need more dialogue and a little less debateDavid Gurteen

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 09:30:05 +0000

By David Gurteen

One of the many posts I have in mind for my blook is to compare debate with dialogue.

We often say we need to debate something - especially in the political world - when what we really need is a dialogue.

Dialogue is collaborative: two or more sides work together toward a common understanding while debate is oppositional: two sides oppose each other and attempt to prove each other wrong.

In dialogue, finding common ground is the goal while in debate, winning is the goal.

In dialogue, one listens to the other side(s) in order to understand, find meaning and find agreement while in debate, one listens to the other side in order to find flaws and to counter its arguments.

Dialogue enlarges and possibly changes a participants point of view while debate affirms a participant's own point of view.

To resolve issues and make decisions, we need both debate and dialogue. One is not intrinsically better then the other - they serve different purposes. But we have a strong tendency to enter into debate and even argument when we should be doing is having a dialogue.
