In January 2017, Kern Beare and his son Will embarked on a cross-country “conversation road tour” to talk to as many people as possible about the state of our country and how we could move forward together. From that experience, Kern developed and has been facilitating a workshop called Difficult Conversations: The Art and Science of Working Together.
Come hear Kern and Will share stories and insights from their cross-country adventure and workshop experiences.
Participate in an interactive exploration of some of the social, psychological and even neurological dynamics that often prevent men from constructively conversing with one another in the face of disagreement, including the fear of vulnerability and the impulse to “win.” Learn some specific strategies to work through those dynamics, allowing us to stay engaged in “difficult conversations” creatively and compassionately.
Facilitator Kern Beare is a former Silicon Valley communications professional with deep roots in the fields of interpersonal communication and conflict resolution. In 2016, following the U.S. Presidential election, Kern launched the Difficult Conversations Project, an initiative to help address our national divide. He leads non-profit seminars and workshops on how to heal relationships and unleash our capacity for creative collaboration.
