The Three Pillars

The Forum is specifically using silent reflection, deep listening and dialogue in all its events to provide an opportunity for leaders and change-makers who are driven by core human values to learn from each other in a safe space and find new ways forward together. We believe this practice will create a very different outcome in meetings.

Silence

To see a different perspective and think new thoughts we need to give the mind a complete rest in between.  In silent reflection, we digest impressions, let insights sink in and we prepare ourselves to learn something new.

Listening

To listen deeply with only a sincere intention to grasp what the other is trying to express without interpreting or drawing conclusions is a level of listening that can open up for the dialogue and build bridges of new understanding.

Dialogue

To build our understanding of something, together with others, without the pressure to make decisions or be “right.” When we inquire into a subject, rather than advocate for certain ideas, we can welcome what the other has to offer and create something new together.
