How to have constructive conversations -- in spite of politics | Joanna Norris | TEDxChristchurch

Joanna Norris spent years as a journalist, watching society become ever more polarised. And it's easy to point fingers: to blame others for being ignorant, to blame Facebook for showing us only content that reinforces our prejudices. But she argues that if we really want a more constructive, compassionate flavour of civic discourse, we have to start with ourselves.

Joanna Norris is chief executive of ChristchurchNZ, and until September 2017, she was South Island editor-in-chief for Fairfax Media and editor of The Press where she led a team of 180 journalists. Joanna has worked as a journalist on daily newspapers in New Zealand, Britain and the Middle East. She has won several journalism and leadership awards, including media awards for reporting and feature writing. She was also chair of the New Zealand Media Freedom Committee and was last year awarded the Fairfax Media Women of Influence Award as Change and Innovation Champion.

Rabbi Geoffrey Mitelman on Constructive Conversations

Imagine if, when we have disagreements, if we have different perspectives, that those conversations actually move us forward. - Geoffrey Mitelman

What we found to be particularly effective in dialogue is to start with a specific question that everyone can connect to. Tell me about a moment when you felt awe and wonder and mystery. That's not a threatening conversation, that's actually an opening conversation. - Geoffrey Mitelman

Learn more about Mitelman's work and views in this 2019 conversation with the John Templeton Foundation grantee.
