My next online Knowledge Café on Conversational Leadership is coming up on 18th September with the title "We are not enemies". The topic is one that I have been investigating for some months and is close to my heart.

Why are we increasingly polarized across political, religious, moral, and racial divides and why do we think we are right, and people with conflicting beliefs are wrong - so much so that we see them as enemies?

These are fundamental questions given that neither side fully understands the issues.

In the Café, I will look at some psychological research on the topic and make some suggestions as to how we can better conduct conversations over such seemingly unbridgeable divides.

As usual, in a Knowledge Café, there will be ample time to discuss the issues in the break-out sessions and the main room.

I do hope you can join me, not only is it a fascinating topic, but it is critical that we more fully understand our human nature if we are to create a better world.

We are not enemies but friends. We must not be enemies. -- Abraham Lincoln

You will find more information and can register in my blook.
