10 Civil Rights
Formalizing people’s rights to believe, speak and associate does not guarantee generative interactions, but if we don’t have those rights, we risk losing the capacity to create good things together.
17 Constraints on Concentrated Power
Domination shuts people up and mass manipulation distorts how they think and feel, neither of which enables “healthy interactions that generate wisdom and resourcefulness”!
If we’re going to think about something together, it really helps to do a thorough job of it.
33 Feeling Heard
When someone feels truly heard, their body-mind relaxes. They no longer have to push or back off. They can just be there and hear others, with profound implications for “healthy interaction”!
38 Generating Shared Orientation
We may or may not think we’re all on the same page, but it’s really useful to realize how profoundly we are kin, want the same things, and can come to see a bigger picture together.
39 Generative Interactions
Many group processes use dialogue, diversity, creativity, story, vision, art and even drama to call forth insights and capacities that the people involved never realized before.
48 Integrity and Authenticity
To the extent we all show up as who we really are and communicate what’s really going on, information, wisdom and energy can flow freely among us.
51 Metabolizing Polarization
There’s always incomplete truth on both sides — and more than two ways to look at any issue—so dissolve hard edges by mining and purifying the treasures available all over the map.
58 Nurturing Social Capital
Bonding social capital is how we are connected in our groups while bridging social capital is how well our different groups relate to each other — all of which help us interact creatively.
