The Better Conversations Guide

This guide (download the PDF) is intended to help ground and animate a gathering of friends or strangers in a conversation that might take place over weeks or months. It provides a flexible roadmap you can adapt for your group and intentions. We created it as producers, but more as citizens, out of what we’ve learned in more than 15 years of conversation on On Being.

The Better Conversations Guide and Grounding Virtues are resources in The Civil Conversations Project.
