How to Talk Politics Across the Current Divide
How can we have constructive issue-focused conversations with people with whom we  disagree?  Some of us may want to canvass in swing districts and be able to communicate persuasively before the 2018 election with those who do not share our same beliefs. Others may simply want to be able to talk to estranged family members.

But we know from experience that being armed with facts and logic is not sufficient.

This workshop will help us learn how to engage in productive and respectful conversations that lower communication barriers and allow for meaningful dialogues.

Sharon Ellison is the creator of the Powerful Non-Defensive Communication (PNDC) process and will show us in a fast-paced day how we can prompt others to be much more likely to drop their defenses, absorb what we're saying, and begin to voluntarily shift their positions.

Ellison has trained thousands of professionals, corporate and non-profit leaders and activists in a novel straightforward style of communication that avoids the pitfalls of our more instinctive adversarial approaches.

Ellison is credited with helping the first woman governor of Oregon turn around her trailing campaign by training her to use these powerful, non-defensive communication skills. Sharon has worked with peace activists, helped defeat an anti-gay measure in Oregon and brought together LGBT and right-wing Christian leaders. She has participated in an international symposium focused on the role of language in international conflict resolution. Her workshop will help us learn these same skills.

All sales are final.
