Power Dialogues - Monday

From Angie Hooper: The Power Dialogues program started today. I made up a belief a while ago that I would "get my money's worth" out of any program within the first morning, and then anything I learn after that is bonus material! That intention worked for me again this morning in class. Here's a sample of my learnings from this morning:

  • I had been making myself nervous about coming to the Power Dialogues program because it could change my life. As if the program was going to do something to change me when, really, through the program I am giving myself access to a tool that I could use to change myself. In other words, the program doesn't change me -- I change me.
  • If I want to be a connoisseur of the Dialogue Process then I might try something that seems strange or unusual just to see how it tastes.
  • If I'm needing a specific outcome from an explorer, then I'm being "directive" as the mentor. My attitude can be directive even if I don't use any directive language.
I had a great time today and really looking forward to see what happens tomorrow.
