EF FCP presentation - Amsterdam meeting

  2. 2. GOOD PRACTICE 1 Promoting individuals saying: • Sometimes I make mistakes • Sometimes my motivation is egoistic • I am part of the problem
  3. 3. TESTED IN NL AND PL • In writing online (NL): only offline reactions • In video online (NL): only offline reactions • On air (national radio in PL): great discussion • Live in groups (Conference Gdansk for trainers; in workshops Gdynia with trainers, senior citizens; at school Gdansk with teacher and students) • Shame, laughter • Reflection • Great discussions with instructors, among themselves • Informal one-on-one contact with trainers, marketers (NL): great dialogues • With football hooligans (NL): Shame, laughter
  4. 4. ALTERNATIVE SENTENCES - PL (1)  Sometimes I make mistakes • Everyone makes mistakes but the key is to fix them • I'm not perfect. I'm only human • It's not like I make everything perfectly, but I try to get better • I often makes mistakes • Experience tells me I rarely make mistakes
  5. 5. ALTERNATIVE SENTENCES - PL (2)  Sometimes my motivation is egoistic • Everyone has to be satisfied, even me • It's also in my best interest, but we can both benefit • Often, in actions, I think only about myself • Sometimes I notice that my motivation is egoistic • I take care of others but I also take care of myself
  6. 6. ALTERNATIVE SENTENCES - PL (3)  I am part of the problem - I'm not perfect - I know that I've done mischief - My habits are part of the problem with interpersonal relations
  7. 7. CONCLUSIONS This good practice rather works in live contact and is ineffective online
  8. 8. GOOD PRACTICE 2 C2C/ citizen to citizen – dialogue training • First 90 seconds silence to feel the duration • 2 people sit opposite each other • One asks the other answers – fate decides who has which role • Rules of behavior are established: listening, good will, honesty, respect, patience, being interested • Goal: establish what the two have in common and on what they differ on a given theme (social exclusion) • Duration: 90 seconds • Evaluation by a trainer afterwards
  9. 9. TESTED • In workshops (Gdynia) with trainers and 2 groups of seniors: - Lively dialogues - Intense listening, intense searching for the right words - The hardest for professionals: they lapse into techniques - Hard for individuals who are in a hierarchical relationship
  10. 10. CONCLUSION This good practice is great to let individuals in a non-hierarchical relationship exchange opinions. Professionals tend to hide behind what they’ve learned before.
  11. 11. GOOD PRACTICE 3 • Intervention in online discussions - Providing moderate alternatives - Providing doubt - Asking for more time, more reflection (proposing “slow dialogue”)
  12. 12. TESTED • Online in the Dutch Zwarte Pieten-discussie - Great distrust – accusations of trolling - Great aggression – you’re a hypocrite afraid to have a clear opinion
  13. 13. CONCLUSION Slow dialogue does not work online.
  14. 14. GOOD PRACTICE 4 • Publishing essays • Publishing questionnaires
  15. 15. TESTED • Publication of articles online – on Slideshare - on the Zwarte Pieten discussion: - [essay] 2 weeks ago: 207 views - [essay] 4 months ago: 141 views - [press release] 4 months ago: 401 views - [PPT essay] 4 months ago: 355 views - [good practices & literature overview] 4 months ago: 194 - No discussion • Questionnaire published (Surveymonkey - distribution by well-connected members in the network): - Participants: 110 in PL; 472 in NL - Results published (NL): 536 views - Discussion with the distributors not with the authors
  16. 16. QUESTIONNAIRE PL • Questionnaire published (Surveymonkey - distribution by well-connected members in the network) - Participants: 34 • Questionnaire handed out during workshops and conference: • Conference Gdansk for trainers – Participants: 53 • workshops Gdynia with trainers, senior citizens – Participants: 23 • Total number of participants: 110 • Age: 20 – 70+ • Mostly with higher education
  17. 17. QUESTIONNAIRE PL (2) - Many respondents wrote that they either are not interested in the subject or there are more important issues not being discussed - They describe it as a work of art, symbol of freedom, tolerance, equality - They see proponents & opponents as normal people fighting for their rights and believes - They think that the discussion should stop – it would be bether for everyone and there are more urging matters than rainbow - There were few radical responses against the rainbow, that „zoophiles, murderers, thieves will be trying to make a monument for themselves”
  18. 18. CONCLUSION An online questionnaire about a real taboo subject does not work but about an explosive subject does work. Articles on an explosive subject are read but not discussed – or maybe that’s the effect I [Onno] have. In 6 years of being a journalist I got 2 reactions, 1 by my cousin in Australia who found me for private reasons.
