Rocky Mountain Institute Sessions

By Alia Dahlan

Effective Communication and Collaboration

Using clips from television shows, volunteers from the Rocky Mountain Institute taught us about how communication can be used to solve complex "wicked" problems.
We learned a few communication terms:
Downloading- not listening to others
Debating- arguing one side with a strong view
Dialoging- having a bias, but listening to the other side of the argument for new information
Presencing- having no personal bias and focusing on the problem

Grant Funding Activity

We decided where to allocate $100k worth of grants at Catawba College.

Dragon Fly Lake

We used a role-playing game to decide how to utilize a fictional lake and the area around it.
