Edgar Schein: "Talking to the Campfire"
In the Edgar Schein on Helping: How to Offer, Give, and Receive Help (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VPl3sdNmGU) (Schein, 2011), Schein recommends a technique he calls "talking to the campfire" in order to diffuse group situations and encourage everyone to contribute to solving issues.
• What do you think about this technique?
• Could it work in your culture (organizational or national)?
• Why do you think it would or would not help achieve a state of collaboration in your environment?
