    How Collaboration Unifies Polarization

    in Business

    #TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT).
    We've all seen what polarization can do to a community and country. Extreme polarization hobbles our ability to improve processes and social ills, to progress at a global business leader, to just plain get things done.
    According to our guest this week, Jesse Lyn Stoner (@JesseLynStoner), collaboration is the remedy for polarization.
    "Collaboration is not about giving up your individuality. In fact, successful collaboration depends on speaking clearly and honesty about what you stand for. Collaboration is about valuing and mobilizing diversity as a force toward the common good. It is about recognizing and respecting the humanity in each individual, even those who are stuck at a pole."
    This is tough for leaders and individual contributors to do in the heat of polarization, but it's critical for the world of work to advance, as well as the world itself. This is the very heart of productive communities online and off.
    This week on TalentCulture's #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat, we’re going to discuss the benefits of community collaboration in every incarnation and entity we belong.
    Join co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman and their informative expert guest:
    - Jesse Lyn Stoner (@jesselynstoner), a business consultant, coach, former executive, and bestselling author who has worked closely with leaders for over 25 years, helping them create collaborative, engaged workplaces that make a powerful and positive impact on the world.
    This will be another great show, so we hope to see you here!

    Moving Beyond Rhetoric: The Challenge of Creating Sustainable Communities

    in Culture

    If talking is just not enough, then what might be? 

    Anastasia has been addressing this question at some length, recently, on the New Horizons Small “Zones of Peace Project blog site while both Jack and Anastasia began taking up the issue on their last radio show broadcast.

    “There is no simple answer. So let’s break the complexities down into some of their parts,” suggests Anastasia. From where I sit the goal seems to be how do we, personally and collectively, move ourselves forward from the extremes of independence, self-centeredness and separateness, even polarization, into the kind of collaboration and creative problem solving that can help us build sustainable communities.

    Join Anastasia and Jack for a lively broadcast discussion on the topic, followed by a conference call forum where listeners can offer their viewpoints and ideas. Conference Call forum follows on air broadcast. Call in: 712.432.0600, access code 640883

    Battling Polarization in Politics

    in Politics

    Author Bill Shireman is forging alliances to battle polarization in politics between conservatives, progressives, corporations, and activists, helping adversaries find one another, and meet on common ground. Listen in to hear how he's doing that!

    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

    Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

    But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

    If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! 

    It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

    Political Polarization - Kathryn Ruud & Shannon Fisher on The Authentic Woman

    in Politics

    Tonight's show is an abridged recording of an event that was part of the Beyond Barbie performance series, which was produced by artist Susan Singer. Thanks to Susan for sharing this Beyond Barbie event on The Authentic Woman.

    Host Shannon Fisher shares stories of her experiences as an activist, lobbyist and community organizer - and offers solutions we can use in our personal interactions to reduce friction when discussing political topics. She then interviews linguist, Kathryn Ruud, about the use of language in political propaganda.

    Using examples from the media, Kathryn offers fascinating information about how political candidates use language and other tactics to polarize us. The audio quality of the portion of the evening that includes Kathryn's demonstration of the seven strategies of polarization that contribute to strong divisions in American society is compromised, so for the second half of the broadcast, we would like to direct our listeners to Kathryn's website for videos of her lecturing about these strategies.

    For other podcasts of this show, please see The Authentic Woman on the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network LLC, owner of this podcast. Thanks to our sponsor Michael Lowndes at www.pmlmedia.com.

    The Emotional Side Of Polarization

    in Culture

    In a society of people such as in America where emotion and intellect are often in marked opposition to one another, it is no wonder that finding common ground between opposing viewpoints is so difficult and challenging.

    Yet, after all the many years that science has had since its vast discoveries on brain-mind research of the late twentieth century into the new millenium, the fact that we are still unable to reconcile the perceptions of both right brain, creative problem solving and the cold hard facts of the left may well be at the core of many of our present day problems.

    Anastasia and Jack take up this issue of personal disparities and how they are reflected in our current social and political polarization problems.

    "Visions of Working Together" a "Living Room Conversation"

    in Politics

    Have you ever wondered how we, the American people, will get past our polarized viewpoints to just talk with one another about important issues? We interviewed two people who had visions of engaging a lot of people in a more meaningful way to talk about issues they cared about.

    First, we meet Paul Friedman, a trained facilitator in Sedona, Arizona who was concerned about increasing polarization in his community. So he challenged himself to work with a local group and see how many Living Room Conversations in a single month. The answer is 21. We hear Paul’s story from his initial inspiration to the successful completion of holding the world record for # of Living Room Conversations in a single month.

    Next we meet Debra Rowe who has dedicated her life to sustainability practices including renewable energy. She worked with Living Room Conversations to adapt the conversation guide to work with college students…both as a credited class and on campus. Learn how she took it to the next level by incorporating civic engagement in the materials. 

    What is your vision that could use a little Living Room Conversations magic to expand your project? Learn how these folks used an adaptation of Living Room Conversations to reach new people and build community. Wednesday Night 8:30 PM Eastern/5:30 PM Pacific on Coffee Party Radio
