I’m working on a communications question and need guidance to help me learn.
Listen to Celeste Headleeâ€™s discussion about civil conversations on NPRâ€™s TED Radio Hour (Links to an external site.) and in a well-developed response, reflect on the ideas presented. What are your thoughts, takeaways, and personal opinions on the topics discussed? Additionally, your response should answer the following questions:
Whatâ€™s the difference between talking to hear othersâ€™ perspectives versus talking to change othersâ€™ minds? What 5 tips does the speaker give to engage in productive conversations and which one stands out to you the most? What are some consequences of avoiding difficult conversations about important topics? Do you believe that most Americans are in â€œideological bubblesâ€ today? Are there any topics that you actively try to avoid in conversations with others?
