How It Works

OUR SIGNATURE MODEL

The signature Fearless Dialogues model utilizes a unique combination of radical hospitality, interactive exercises, small-group discussion, large group reflection, and high-impact, theory-based mini lectures. Recognizing the sensitivity of the subject matter and the diversity of perspectives, this fusion of teaching approaches appeals to participants across generational, cultural, educational, racial and class lines. The model also attends to the learning styles of extroverts, introverts, sensory learners, and contemplative thinkers.  
 
The Training Model is divided into three modules: see, hear and change. The first of the three modules, on seeing, aids leaders in identifying gifts in people and places hidden in plain view. The second module on hearing creates an environment where leaders develop the skill to listen deeply, and to value the stories of those from seemingly different backgrounds. The final module on change concludes with a call to action, known as the 3-Feet Challenge™, which invites participants to apply practices of seeing and hearing that they have learned during the session, in their respective contexts, workplaces, homes, and the broader community.
