"After all these years, I can still remember my first World Cafï¿½! Our success with the "Commons Cafï¿½" would not have been possible without this groundbreaking work." --Sharif Abdullah, founder, the Commonway Institute, and author of Creating a World that Works for All "World Cafï¿½ conversations are one of the best ways I know to truly enhance knowledge sharing and tap into collective intelligence. The few simple principles in this book can lead to conscious conversations with the power to change not only the individuals who participate, but also our collective future." --Verna Allee, author of The Knowledge Evolution and The Future of Knowledge "The wisdom of many voices speaks from these pages! May we take seriously their invitation to call forth what has heart and meaning in our world through conversations that matter." --Tom Atlee, founder, The Co-Intelligence Institute, and author of The Tao of Democracy "The capacity to see the world of the "other" sounds simple, but it is not. Yet it is the core of creating a new human history together. The World Cafï¿½ and this book serve as an inspiration to help make that possible." --Lic. Esteban Moctezuma Barragan, Mexico's former Minister of Social Development "The prevailing wisdom is that talk is cheap and that it's a poor, timid substitute for action. This warm and inviting book demonstrates that conversation is action, because it is the wellspring from which relationships and trust are generated and informed decisions grow." --Thomas F. Beech, President and CEO, Fetzer Institute "The challenge of leadership in these times of breathtaking speed and exhausting complexity is to find creative ways to embrace the future, and let go of the past. World Cafï¿½ dialogue provide us the opportunity to do just that." --Paul Borawski, Executive Director and Chief Strategic Officer, American Society for Quality "Understanding the World Cafï¿½'s fascinating model of a living social system is essential for the understanding of life and leadership in human organizations." --Fritjof Capra, author of The Web of Life and The Hidden Connections "The World Cafï¿½ couldn't be more timely. It offers inspiration and practical guidance to those who want to convene groups--even very large groups--for conversations that stimulate hope, creativity, and collective commitment." --Laura Chasin, founder and Director, Public Conversations Project "This book and the stories in it offer hope for addressing complex challenges and provide methods for strengthening family and community relationships. It is truly a work of art and a very important contribution." --Rita Cleary, co-founder, Visions of a Better World Foundation "World Cafï¿½ conversations touch the heart of what "human being" or "being human" means. By cherishing and including diverse voices, this book models the very nature of collective knowledge that is the heart of the World Cafï¿½ approach to dialogue." --Sara Cobb, Director, Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University, and former Executive Director, Program on Negotiation, Harvard Law School
