CITIZENSHIP IS NOT
A SPECTATOR SPORT
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
Difficult Conversations: The Art and Science of Working Together is an engaging, interactive workshop exploring a powerful set of principles and strategies that will help you approach difficult conversations in a radically new way — one that can heal divides and change hearts and minds.
Focusing on the question, “Who do we need to be to have the conversations we need to have?” participants will discover:
- Why difficult conversations often trigger our fight/flight survival drive, and how that shuts down our brain’s ability to listen, be present and take in new information.
- Why trust is essential when navigating a difficult conversation, and how we can quickly establish trust even with someone we don’t know well.
- How our personal story can get in the way of clear communication, and how to look “beyond” our story to access our innate capacity for connection, creativity and collaboration.
- How understanding the “three dimensions” of difficult conversations can help us move more quickly from conflict to resolution.
