C3 - CARE about the dignity and worth of others

That means I:

  • Value and protect the welfare of others.
  • Take into account the level of understanding of others.
  • Take into account the feelings of others.
  • Discover and listen to the views and reasons of others.

Understanding Point of View

Elizabeth Lesser makes an excellent suggestion to get to know someone from a group you have negatively stereo typed by taking them to lunch and having an open minded conversation.

Ground rules:

  1. Don't persuade, defend or interrupt
  2. Be curious, be real
  3. LISTEN

Questions to ask:

    1. Share some of your life experiences with me.
    2. What issues deeply concern you?
    3. What have you always wanted to ask someone from the opposite point of view?

Labels often fit NONE of the people you actually know.
