12 10–12 November 2014 How Our Thinking Impacts Our Results Page 12 What’s the Way Out? Willingness to Temporarily Suspend Judgment Attitude of Curiosity Seek First to Understand Before Being Understood (Stephen Covey) Ask yourself: “Why would a reasonable, rational person do/say that?” Walk Up/Down the Ladder

13 10–12 November 2014 How Our Thinking Impacts Our Results Page 13 Walking Up/Down Ladder For others: unattached curious inquiry –Can you help me understand your thinking? –What led you to that conclusion? –When you said X (their words), did you mean (your interpretation)? For yourself: skillful advocacy –Here’s my view, and here’s how I got there. –I think X is going to happen and here are the data points I’m basing that conclusion on. –Let me explain where I’m coming from on this. Adapted from Peter M. Senge, The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook
