Bridging the Political Divide - Workshop - 10/21/2017 - Salida
This Saturday I’ll be hosting a Bridging the Political Divide workshop. This workshop is for anyone who would like to improve their ability to effectively discuss difficult issues with a person holding different interests, opinions, values, and beliefs.
Learn to: * Listen to the deeper needs and values beneath the surface positions. * Speak so a person with different positions can hear your side of the issue. * Work with strong emotions, in others and yourself. * Work collaboratively to develop mutual-win solutions * Negotiate differences without giving in or coercing others.
Please join me this Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at the First Presbyterian Church, 7 Poncha Boulevard, Salida, CO. We are requesting a suggested donation of $15 to cover our costs.
Although the primary focus is learning the methods and skills of collaborative dialogue and consensus building, the program will focus on local (Salida) issues in anticipation of the upcoming city council elections.
