Communicating With Care: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Bonus Round!
June 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
June 20, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
We may want to communicate with others in such a way that we gain knowledge and bridge divides, but those conversations don’t always come naturally. Most of us struggle to self-evaluate our communication skills and we might be unaware of words and actions that shut down healthy dialogue when discussing divisive issues. In this conversation, we will actively share and explore what works and what doesn’t, and we will reflect on ways that we can improve our interactions with others.
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- What concerns, if any, do you have about engaging in–what are typically considered–difficult conversations (i.e. race, politics, religion, etc.)?
- In your experience, what words or actions have you or others used that:
-made you feel heard and/or bridged a divide?
-made you feel dismissed and/or shut down communication?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
