"Hi Bonnie, I think you make an excellent point that management needs to let people know which decision style they intend to use before conversations begin. People need to know how they are going to participate in a decision. People will accept the…"

"Eric, I think you make a valid and insightful observation. I think an understanding needs to be fettered out about what do we mean by ethics. This is Interesting conversation... but I think the conversation needs to come back to this question."

Ria Baeck replied to Janet Birgenheier's discussion 'World Cafe and Ethical Considerations' in the group Methods for Strategic Collaboration
"First of all; if you want to reply to the conversation thread and not just one comment, you can hit the button below the start piece of the conversation. Normally it should be also at the bottom of the page, so that we can choose, but apparently…"

"Ria, are you saying that one's ethics spring, in part, from one's developmental level? Please tell me more when you have time!"

Ria Baeck replied to Janet Birgenheier's discussion 'World Cafe and Ethical Considerations' in the group Methods for Strategic Collaboration
"Hello all, Aren't we mixing 'ethical' with different developmental levels here? If you want me to tell more about that, just let me know. i will be able to answer in a few weeks... just not now..."

Lucinda Winslow replied to Janet Birgenheier's discussion 'World Cafe and Ethical Considerations' in the group Methods for Strategic Collaboration
"I will be interested to hear what you find. At some point, you might be interested in finding out about the Vistar Method of Communication. Right now its application has specifically been for individual change...level of Being questions...and the…"

"Again, the "reply to this" button was missing, so I'm replying to a previous posting by you. The answer to both of your questions is "yes." I'm passionate about using WC to help stakeholders engage in the process and…"

Lucinda Winslow replied to Janet Birgenheier's discussion 'World Cafe and Ethical Considerations' in the group Methods for Strategic Collaboration
"Really interesting. Is your basic question: "How can people be encouraged to embrace rather than resist change?" And is the answer you are testing: "Tapping into the satisfaction of creative ownership?""

"Yes, OD is Organization Development. I plan to use World Cafe and other similar large-group interventions to facilitate organizational change by engaging stakeholders in visioning, strategic planning, planning change, etc. I see WC and other such…"

Lucinda Winslow replied to Janet Birgenheier's discussion 'World Cafe and Ethical Considerations' in the group Methods for Strategic Collaboration
"Is this OD as in Organizational Development? (I had to Google it.) Do you have a specific way you want to use this? I am interested since we are very interested in finding ways for people to meet beyond programming and ego...a vertical thrust, if…"

Well Janet you will find other in the bay area that are fluent in TWC. With that said, if you would like a conversation just holler. I will be 57 next month so I know how exciting it is to be pursuing a life dream. Me too. I wish you the very best in everything. I do not hesitate to give me a call.

Janet I have not heard from you and wondering if you got my note. Did we meet at the Pegasus conference in Boston? You certainly do look familiar. Let me know if I can be of service.
