Talk Description:

JUST RELATIONSHIPS WEBINAR: A Framework to Shift Frames of Reference and Reach for Understanding

Have you struggled to listen to, let alone understand, someone who disagrees with you, how you think or how you live your life? Do you find yourself blocking or unfriending people in your social networks or cutting off relationships because of what they believe? How much does your circle of friends and colleagues reflect a wide array of diversity…or how much do they think and look like you? If your experiences resonate with any of these questions, you are not alone and this webinar could be for you. During this webinar you will learn how fear and power imbalances impact our capacity to communicate, connect with people different from us and remain value-based even in the face of conflict, disagreement and dominance.
