Apologies everyone for the late entry
Jenny Day
33:24
I'm in but sound is too low. Apparently I'm muted but can't work out how to undo.
Peter Strous
33:45
About Abbott... I hear you are concerned about migration...
mazz
42:11
Good
Lee Kennedy
42:25
There was a sense of being heard
ruth (wentworth)
42:36
I like being heard
rrewth: warringah
42:41
Yes it was great to be heard and it also made me clarify to myself what I felt
judith
42:52
Felt really good, We were in furious agreement

HI, Just got chat about. Good to be heard and also reflect on what i said

hard work
Lee Kennedy
43:12
A bit of a game
judith
43:22
Interesting, and yes, the techniques seemed to be usable
Wentworth Tracey
43:26
Hard. But good.
ruth (wentworth)
43:45
I felt like I got to know them better quickly
Peter Strous
44:03
a bit more work, not that we might not listen but one has to think about the other's concerns, fears, worries, emotions, values.....
jayneflanagan
44:11
It felt that you genuinely connected with the other person and their concerns
Wentworth Tracey
44:18
Its important to have these practice sessions , so we can make active listening normal behaviour
ruth (wentworth)
45:09
less give and take ... a focus on them
rrewth: warringah
45:51
paying more attention to making sure I’m not representing my own views rather than representing and reflecting back the views of the other person
Peter Strous
45:58
Normally I would listen, probably recognize but not acknowledge the other's concerns, and return with facts

HARD!!!!!
judith
01:09:23
Very hard. Am wondering how you get to turning the corner
Jan Maguire
01:09:33
We
Wentworth Tracey
01:09:35
It was difficult.... to find values
Jan Maguire
01:09:48
Don't worry guys - we'll get better with practice
ruth (wentworth)
01:10:01
definitely tricky but got there I think
rrewth: warringah
01:10:44
Crikey I need a LOT of practice!
Peter Strous
01:10:46
Reflecting on the values is not impossible but than using those values to get to the bigger picture is not easy!
ruth (wentworth)
01:11:25
I got a bit lost - getting to tony Abbott's values rather than the person's
Marilynn - AG KingsfordSmith (Sydney)
01:12:28
I agree with Peter's point. Associating positive values with their love of Hanson or Abbott could backfire.
Peter Strous
01:13:16
strong leadership with a vision is important, but it needs to be the right vision! We can acknowlege the "strong leadership" necessary but then ask what vision this leader ideally would have could be the next question...
judith
01:14:05
That sounds good to me. But I'm wondering where this goes - how does this influence their voting intentions?
Peter Strous
01:14:55
What values would our ideal strong leader have?
Wentworth Tracey
01:16:06
It was hard with pauline hansan who did not want immigration as they take jobs.... She felt this was a value of a fair go... her value was a fair go.. so i could agree.. didnt know where to go from there...
Lee Kennedy
01:17:13
Better to use “what makes you believe…?” that “Why do you believe…? Less interrogatory.
Louise Newey
01:18:26
noticed that a couple of people still had things to say - can you pop them in the chat?
jayneflanagan
01:18:37
I wondered whether you could then say ‘how do you show care for your community?”
Louise Newey
01:19:36
Great point Jayne
Laura-Doe Harris
01:24:48
Is this story intended to be relating to the particular constituency we are ringing . Eg healthcare is the issue in my script
Fiona Conolly ACT
01:25:20
Not sure whether it would be better to choose a “personal story” that relates to what they are saying. Ie reflects their values. I felt that a lot of liberals would have objected strongly to the women story.
Jan Maguire
01:37:13
It was reaaly good to hear why people feel the way they do
judith
01:38:14
I felt good telling it and being listened to. And I was moved by Sue's story of extended family members who for the first time in generations have had their source of water run dry. Water is life.
ruth (wentworth)
01:38:26
I was really moved by Ann's story
Peter Strous
01:40:00
could we revisit the recording of this later on???
Kinga Bisits
01:40:17
I was amazed at how Rays story about friendship with an Islander connected to Duttons behaviour being so inappropriate....
jayneflanagan
01:40:42
the values I associate with the statement of the heart are justice, rights compassion and caring .. it’s good to state the values your story represents
Sue Ellen
01:41:00
It might be worth having some stories 'up your sleeve' related to different issues. for example, one story on climate change, another story on human rights, another story on health etc.
roymenner
01:41:14
Let’s say you call a Tony Abbott fan. When they hear you’re from GetUp, they probably expect an argument at best or a verbal fight. Instead they get you spending time actively listening, telling stories etc. Is there any research that talks about how this can be a change focum?
Lulu
01:44:04
will we have a copy of the script
Laura-Doe Harris
01:44:46
It is provided to all calling party hosts Lulu

01:49:03
I door knocked too and found initial 'not interested' hard to overcome
Phil
01:49:11
I don’t want to be inauthentic or manipulative.
judith
01:50:55
Gotta go, bye everyone, and thanks
ruth (wentworth)
01:51:29
a few said they wouldn't talk to me because it was getup - what do you think about asking what they think getup stands for?
Lulu
01:51:40
Are there a few different scripts avaiable for us
