I find I use the IA Practice “Facilitate Agreement” in many areas of my life. Now that the language and process of proposing/understanding/checking for agreement has reached an intuitive level, I find it helpful in many situations. When working with volunteers, it is vital for setting expectations and providing accountability. At home, I can often erase misunderstandings with my teenage son (and close a few loopholes he may be trying to create).
David has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
