Quakers and Business - decision-making through Quaker Business Method - London
@Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London. NW1 2BJ
When we engage with the brokenness of the world, one of our tools can be willingness to listen: to each other, to those with whom we disagree, to the vulnerable, and to the leadings of spirit, however we are sensitive to them. Listening, combined with trust and openness, enables clear discussion that lays aside narrow agendas. Practitioners and specialists will be sharing best practice.
