Articulation Convention Toolbook introduces 10 articulation exercises for public servants, who often need to be able to look at different situations from someone else’s perspective, sometimes transforming from one character to another several times a day. The exercises aim at developing several (social) skills, such as as courage, self-control, reaction, the ability to transform and to direct our imagination according to a specific situation. The toolbook is equipped with an introduction essay titled ‘Next Time Next Venue’ that sets the tone for the exercises, as well as other examples that illustrate the techniques. The publication commences with the introduction to Erving Goffman’s ‘The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life’ that gives an indication of how to employ these skills in daily situations and use them to one’s benefit.
