The Difficult Conversations Project is an initiative to help people have respectful, productive dialogues on the challenges that confront our communities, our nation and our world. This powerful set of research-based principles and strategies will equip you to engage in meaningful dialogue with anyone, regardless of social or ideological differences.
Focusing on the question, Who do we need to be to have the conversations we need to have? this workshop will help you:
- Gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics that turn conversations into conflicts.
- Discover how one critical shift in thinking can turn a negative interaction into a creative and constructive engagement. Understand how our personal story can be a tool to both build bridges and burn them.
- Learn how to look beyond our personal story to access more easily and deeply our innate capacity for connection, creativity and collaboration.
Workshop participants experience how their personal story shapes their perception.
