Origins and Mission
Diplomacy Dojo comes from the research lab of Dr. Anne Hsu, Associate Professor at Queen Mary, University of London. We use artificial intelligence to help you transform feedback and difficult conversations into opportunities for building trust. There is always a constructive frame for every conversation. Our aim is to reinforce cultures of honesty and trust in organizations by helping employees find ways to communicate that are authentic, constructive, and supportive.
How it works
It doesn’t matter what you say as much as what others hear. Feedback or conversations about different viewpoints often become ineffective when judgmental language is used. Judgmental language often triggers a defensive response in others and trust erodes. Our brain processes social judgment like the fear and pain of physical attack -- our attention becomes focused on fight or flight. When someone is focused on defending themselves, they can no longer hear or understand you effectively.
Diplomacy Dojo helps you be effective when giving feedback and having difficult conversations. We use artificial intelligence to alert you to ill-advised language that may trigger defensive responses in others and helps you find more effective wordings for your messages.
