Civic Standards (a reminder of the foundation of our work)
* All those impacted by the problem are stakeholders and help define the problem.
* All stakeholders are accountable for contributing resources (time, networks, money) to solve the problem.
* All stakeholders are engaged in decision-making and policy-making that contributes to the common good.
* All stakeholders are expected to practice civic principles in the places where they have the authority to act.
Civic Skills (a reminder of how we operate)
* Distinguish objective reality (facts) from subjective reality (interpretative) as both relate to achieving common goals.
* Ask open-ended questions to engage different perspectives.
* Practice strategic listening to determine and clarify self-interest as it relates to common goals.
* Suspend judgment to understand divergent points of view.
* Ability to negotiate and compromise while staying accountable to civic principles.
* Foster constructive tension to work through values that are each good in their own right but often conflict (e.g. freedom and equality).
* Hold self and others accountable for following through on agreements.
