Creating Positive Connections:
Communicating a Responsive Worldview

Everyone holds a worldview. It is the “operating instructions” for how we live life and interact with the world around us.

The question is, at a time when different perspectives increasingly are brought to the table, do communications and public affairs officers, businesses, governments, and non-profits have strategies to deal with divergence? We face problems that have the potential to deeply impact our lives, yet society often is fragmented on what to do about them.

Ideas are particularly difficult to navigate today because they come so quickly and from so many directions. Discerning fact and knowing what is true has always been important, and it has never been more so in an age that finds us all drowning in information.

People around us—co-workers, clients, customers, family, neighbors—help shape the way we see and cope with the world. Unless we acknowledge that each perspective is just one way to see the world – it’s difficult to find integrated solutions.

“Creating positive new connections and communicating a responsive worldview” was the theme for StratCommWorld 2023.

Listening actively and deeply helps us understand other perspectives. Then communicating effectively is essential for innovation and for working together to analyze problems and identify solutions.

StratCommWorld 2023 explored ideas and solutions that challenged our worldviews—always so we end up learning something new—that helps make the world and work look less complex.
