Civility: Recovering the Essential Ingredient for Flourishing

June 29, 2021

Remember when “bad behavior” was something that we talked about mostly in reference to toddlers and pets? It’s abundantly clear that the old definition of bad behavior has changed dramatically. In the last few years in particular we seem to have lost the capacity to engage in the kinds of civic conversations our communities need. The incivility isn’t limited to town meetings - it’s spread into companies, schools, and anyplace else people gather - including and maybe even especially - into our online gathering spaces.

So how do we get it back - or maybe get it in the first place? This episode is drawn from a recent Third Thursday event that featured three speakers: Lisa Hutcheson, Hunter Morrison, and Ruth Ellen Whitt - each tackling the topic from a different professional perspective.
