Understanding the impact of human actions on the environment
When were trying to persuade people, we frequently take an adversarial approach. Instead of opening their minds, we effectively shut them down or rile them up.
They play a defense by putting up a shield, play offense by preaching their perspectives and prosecuting ours, or play politics by telling us what we want to hear without changing what they actually think.
I want too explore a collaborative approach in which we show more humility and curiosity and invite others to think like scientists.
It's more like a dance that hasn't been choreographed, negotiated with a partner who has a different set of steps in mind.
I'd you try too hard to lead, your partner will resist. If your adapt your moves to hers, and get her to do the same, you're more likely to end up in rythm.
If you have too many arguments, you'll dilute the power of each and every one.
They are going to be less explained and i don't know if any of them will land enough.
The audience will not believe them important enough.
Most top debaters aren't citing information.
When we ask our debate partners genuine questions, we leave them intrigued to learn more.
We just need to open their minds to the possibility that they might be wrong.
Their natural curiosity will do the rest.
Motivational interviewing starts with an attitude of humility and curiosity.
We don't know what mint motivate someone else to change, but we're eager to find out.
The goal isn't to tell people what to do; it's to help them break out of overconfidence cycles and see new possibilities.
Out role is to hold up a mirror so they can see themselves more clearly and empower them to examine their beliefs and behaviours.
When we try to convince people to start to think again, our first instinct is to usually to start talking.
Yet the most effective way to help others open their minds is often to listen.
Listening is more than a matter of talking less. It's a set of skills in asking and responding.
It starts with showing more interest in other people's interests rather than trying to judge their status or prove our own...
We can all get better at asking truly curious questions that don't have a hidden agenda of fixing, saving, advising, convincing or correcting.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
