CIVIL DISCOURSE: AN ART, NOT A SCIENCE
It should come as no surprise that interactions—both in person and online—have become increasingly heated in our digitally connected yet socially divided world. Perhaps you have found yourself in a spirited conversation that, after volleying back and forth, ended with frustration and the words, “I’m just saying ...”. This usually signals a dead end and may even leave you feeling that your relationship with the other person has changed for the worse.
Digital interactions, devoid of nuance and understanding, further complicate discussion. We may become entrenched in the belief that our opinions are the “right” ones and avoid conversations with those whose opinions differ from our own, sending us into a never-ending echo chamber. Sound familiar?
In I’m Just Saying, author Milan Kordestani, founder of online publication The Doe, shows us that we can better navigate difficult conversations and find easier ways to communicate through the art of civil discourse.
In this book, you’ll discover:
• How challenging conversations can help us grow and learn from one another.
• Why working in good faith to find common ground can make us better communicators and inspire us to seek positive change in all facets of our lives.
• How trusting yourself and your intentions can guide any conversation to a positive outcome and inspire others to change.
