Deeper ownership tends to support good implementation. Where decisionmakers - such as elected officials or board members - are involved in an issue, they are included in the process and thus become advocates as opposed to needing to advocated to. Where the group manages its own destiny, self-organization and full ownership are outcomes of the process. Because voices from all sectors of the organization or community are involved, there is an opportunity to affect its shared values and beliefs. For example, a group may discover, following a future search process, that new qualities, such as inclusion or collaboration, have become part of its ordinary language where they were missing before. New relationships are built which change the way a group or organization operates. People aquire an understanding of the way different parts of their organization or community, think, operate or believe, demystifying each other and reducing projection and misunderstandings. Incentives for working together effectively are established. People learn that community also involves allowing for the existence of strongly held disagreements and that this does not need to prevent it from being and acting as a community. They learn that it is not necessary to resolve all such disagreements in order to move forward. It helps people dispell these common held fantasies.

The Bohm Dialogue, especially Collective Reflection has significance for me in terms of artistic critique and dialogue.

If one wanted to connect this to Jungian thought I'd relate to that.
