This workshop offers a model for building trust and engaging in difficult conversations in these polarized times, using a framework of self-knowledge, purposeful listening, common courtesy and good faith.|
-You will learn to confidently engage conflict and have constructive conversations with family, friends and colleagues.
-You will learn specific techniques to assess, initiate and hold difficult conversations.
-You will gain insights into your own reactions to conflict and learn communication skills to better understand and respond to challenging situations
Nora Ludviksen and Jim Levy, both facilitative mediators and conflict engagement specialists, will teach and demonstrate ways to engage with others in a constructive way, to build confidence, and to manage emotions as we attempt to bridge the divide.
The workshop is designed as a 3-part curriculum with assignments between sessions to build skills, complexity and confidence. Each session builds upon the previous ones, so we strongly recommend signing up for the series.
