Empathic Dashboard

Here’s an idea to help with in achieving resonance in group conversations, and with making group decisions.

Each person in the group can signal with how many fingers ( 1 to 5) they hold out how ‘heard’ or ‘understood’ they feel in the conversation. This can be done at certain times in a group conversation to check in.

This Empathic Dashboard method can be done before making a group vote. The group can set the criteria that you need everyone to be showing at least 4 fingers before you vote.

For instance this past weekend we had a group conversation with five people. Once in a while someone would make a hand signal ( in our case it was a fist) to do the Empathic Dashboard to see how heard we all felt . When someone gave two fingers or less it was a chance to check in why they hadn’t been feeling understood in the conversation.
