I’m Johnnie Moore, and I help people work better together

Chris Corrigan regularly reminds me of why I admire his work. Here’s the latest reason.

Today I ran into an interesting situation. I was in a conversation about a community process I have been designing and a potential participant took me aside and said that she would love to participate but that one of the people who had already agreed to also participate had committed some serous abuse against her partner. She wondered how I would do to resolve the situation.

That was a good one, a little bit out of the blue and somewhat unexpected. I thought for a moment and then, putting my best collaborative principles into practice said “I don’t know. What would you do if you were in my situation?” She wasn’t expecting this answer, but to her credit she stopped and thought about it. We stood next to each other in silence for a few moments.

“I don’t know,” she said. “Well then,” I said. “That makes two of us. Let’s think about this together.”
