The story as it goes is well known: You are in a TV game, the host (called Monty) tells you the rules…
“There are 3 doors, one holds a flashy car, the other two goats… You may choose wisely…”
Easy… You have 1 in 3 options to win the price. You look at the doors, all look the same, no noises, no clues… Monty is not helping you… So you choose…done!But this not all… Cheeky old Monty has a final twist up his sleeve… He goes an opens one of the doors you didn’t choose only to reveal a goat, and then asks:
“Last chance! Do you stick or swap doors?”
So what do you do?
Which option does give you more chances to win? Or does it not matter? Think about it, and write it down…
“The word dialogue comes from the Greek dia, which means through, and logos, which means word or meaning. So dialogue is about letting meaning flow through our words. In a true dialogue, we hear each other’s words to gain new understanding and find shared meaning. What most of us do is discuss, which comes from the same root as concussion and percussion, we try to shake things up and find the answer. In searching for that answer we often talk right past each other, jumping in, naming solutions, failing to leave the silence spaces that are needed to allow the meaning of what the other person has said seep into our heart, before we begin to form a response.” ~ Suzanne Marsh

Take your wild guess and write it down quickly! A couple of hours? 10 hours? 3 years? Maybe more?…
