One little insight/technique from Malcolm Allan from last week's knowledge-cafe. In a conversation when someone says something with which you disagree - to keep the conversation open and creative - reply with the words:
"And my map of the world is a little different - can I share it with you?"
or a similar phrase.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
