Learn to confidently engage conflict and have constructive conversations; and specific techniques to assess, initiate and hold difficult conversations. Geared toward people who are feeling stuck, alienated or reactive when talking with loved ones, friends or colleagues who hold different views, and people who want to engage constructively with others in respectful dialogue.
This workshop offers a model for building trust in these polarized times, using self-knowledge, purposeful listening, common courtesy and good faith. Led by Nora Ludviksen and Jim Levy, both certified mediators and conflict engagement specialists.
