According to Bohm, Dialogue should not be confused with discussion, lecture, discourse or debate, which, says Bohm, all suggest working towards a goal rather than simply exploring. Meeting without an objective or agenda is done to create a "free space" for something new to happen.
Specifically, any method of conversation that claims to be based on the "four principles of dialogue as established by David Bohm" can be considered to be a form of Bohm Dialogue.
- Suspend decisions
- Suspend judgement
- Build on the ideas of others
