  • I create meaningful connections by facilitating dialogue and listening sessions.

 

Podcast

Overview

Facilitating dialogue enables people to share their own views and listen to differing views about a political or social concern, thus gradually moving towards a deeper understanding of their situation. Agreement is not a primary aim of dialogue, but understanding is.

00:30- About Amir Carmel

  • I create meaningful connections by facilitating dialogue and listening sessions.
  • I believe that fully showing up and staying open to others is the best way to grow and learn, for individuals, teams, and organizations.

00:38- About The Inner Work Out

  • I started the Inner Work-Out with the wish to make listening and dialogue an accessible and common practice, like physical work-out.
  • At the Inner Work-Out, we create spaces for real connections to each other and to oneself.
  • The starting point was structured peer coaching sessions, and slowly we developed them further to cover different elements of listening, using embodiment practices, NVC, contemplative meditation and conflict resolution.

05:29- You create a resilient culture of belonging and build meaningful relationships within teams and across departments

  • My way of seeing it is in the same way that you would look at an individual and say that they have a certain personality or a certain part in an organization or community or any group of people can have a certain characteristic, certain features in their personality.

08:38- What should startups do to build a strong culture?

  • What helps is that you allow culture to grow freely and create enough space for people to take ownership on the culture.
  • It needs a good condition for culture to thrive, but also it needs a sense of ownership and autonomy.

14:52- Three lessons

  • Just do it and do it now.
  • Listen to your heart.
  • Keep learning.
