Meaningful conversations on heated topics eliciting different perspectives can be tricky, sticky and prickly. Do you know how to maneuver productively in these conversations? Or do you run from them for fear of escalating conflict, being misunderstood, or saying something you might regret? Participants will have an opportunity to identify their biggest challenges and triggers; learn a tool to check assumptions; and practice speaking to be understood and listening to understand.
