1. Embracing curiosity: We believe that the strength of our communities depends on the actions we take, and those actions result from our mindset. We therefore embrace a mindset that we always have something to learn, others may see things we’re missing, and collaboration can produce mutual gains. That mindset leads to constructive dialogue and effective problem-solving. We reject a mindset that we’re always right and those who disagree are always wrong, and that another group’s gain is our loss.
3. Taking action. We believe that constructive dialogue must lead towards action that meaningfully addresses social, economic, and environmental challenges. Achieving shared goals builds relationships, which facilitates further problem-solving, leading to a powerful cycle of stronger relationships and more effective problem-solving.
