  1. Be open to each other
  2. Listen to understand
  3. Have patience, there is no goal or outcome that we are trying to arrive at.
  4. Notice what you are feeling. Don’t react, but find a way to present your thoughts without blame or judgement.
  5. Try not to agree or disagree
  6. Be aware of your own beliefs and assumptions and notice if you personalize them. See if you hold on tight or are flexible. How does that impact the way you can look at an issue?
