donhornsby's curator insight, February 26, 2013 7:49 AM

(From the article): For me, being civil is living in mutual respect and having meaningful connections and conversations across and among groups. These are necessary to building trust and social capital in our government, community, churches, businesses, and in our homes.  It means being able to know what truth is, and being able to speak it, while at the same time listening carefully to the truth of those we do not understand or know.

Richard Hart's curator insight, February 26, 2013 11:03 PM

CIV·il  (svl) - adj. Of, relating to, or befitting a citizen or citizens...

 

CIV ility (si vil’ it ee) - n. Quality of being civilized; the manner of a civil person; politeness...

 

If civility has its roots in the notion of citizenship -- the assumption of rights and responsibilities in relation both to others, and to a larger community -- it's hard to imagine that anyone aspiring to be a leader in an organziation could undervalue this quality. What could be a more fundamental acknowledgement of that inter-relatedness than the intentional and deliberate offering of common courtesies, the extension of everyday thoughtfulness?

And yet, in the midst of our busy lives, this is precisely the thing we so often do forget….
