| Re-dignifying Practices |

The re-dignifying practices are more than methods for good communication, they are ways of being, seeing and doing that create a podium for human dignity where the “other” is welcomed.

Re-dignifying Practices

Avoid You are invited to
Judging and evaluating Be carefully curious
Assuming Ask questions that you do not know the answer to and use the vocabulary of the narrator(s)
Fixing, solving problems, and intervening Elevate the narrator to primary authorship
Giving advice and reframing Be open to be surprised and transformed
Giving compliments, feedback, affirmations and positive judgements Share gifts and reflections as “offerings of your moved heart” (Tom Carlson)
