Hot Topics: A Training in Handling Heated Conversations

Folks in our community who have an interest in listening well during heated conversations are invited to this 2 hour training in Compassionate Listening. Prior experience with CL or related techniques is helpful but not required.

From 7-9 PM, we'll review CL basics, followed by a series of exercises and practice sessions on asking curious open-ended questions.

So many people are interested in these important skills of good listening and skilled communication. We plan this first event as the beginning of a series of trainings and practices over late winter and spring.
