Creating Conversations that Connect: Tools for Difficult Conversations – hybrid model

With Cory Lockhart

February 3, 2024

Many of us deeply feel the divisiveness of our time. We long to have bridge-building conversations and yet when we try, we often end up frustrated, angry, dismayed. We want to be true to our values and to have fruitful conversations; sometimes it feels impossible to do both.

What are ways to maintain connection so that both parties have a chance to speak honestly and be heard?

How do we move from “us” and “them” to a greater sense of shared vision?

How do we cultivate win-win conversations?

This 2-hour training introduces a framework to express yourself with clarity, authenticity and understanding during challenging conversations-  at home, in the workplace, or anywhere else.

The workshop includes:

  • An outline of the framework
  • Introduction of strategies (with handouts)
  • Modeling of the practices

Discussion (large and/or small group)

Hybrid model 10 am – noon

These strategies opens possibilities for win-win outcomes.  The training is perfect for individuals wanting tools to connect across divides, whether personal or ideological; teams wanting a common framework for communication; and anyone else wanting to cultivate greater connection in conversations.
