Becoming the Communicator You Want to Be (December 10-12, 8:30AM – 5:00PM)
Have relationships that feel stuck? Want to make a dreaded conversation feel hopeful? In this workshop, participants will learn how to reflect, listen, speak, and inquire in ways that help them understand themselves and one another more deeply and communicate more effectively.
About Public Conversations: The Public Conversations Project fosters constructive conversation where there is conflict driven by differences in identity, beliefs, and values. We work locally, nationally, and globally to provide dialogue facilitation, training, consultation, and coaching. We help groups reduce stereotyping and polarization while deepening trust and collaboration and strengthening communities.
At the core of many of today’s most complex social problems is a breakdown in relationships that leads to mistrust, gridlock, and fractured communities. Public Conversations’ method, Reflective Structured Dialogue, addresses the heart of this breakdown: we work to shift relationships, building the communication skills and trust needed to make action possible and collaboration sustainable. Reflective Structured Dialogue helps participants engage in constructive, often groundbreaking conversations that can restore trust and lay the foundation for collaborative action.
