Guidelines for effective communication

  • Listen to understand

  • Speak respectfully

  • Try to avoid repeating things that have already been said.

  • Use the “community garden” for issues we need to follow up on

  • Make room for people to speak who may be quiet or slow to take the floor

  • What else do we want to add to this list?
