January 17, 2023 Learning Webinar
We live in turbulent and polarized times and building trust and creating space for constructive conversations can seem like an impossible challenge. Thinking that the way out of the mess we are in is more of what got us here, we need to re-imagine the way we interact, connect with communities and create space for the conversations that matter most. Sharing stories of challenge, heartache and humour, we will cover:
What is happening in the public arena
What it takes to make change in the systems, structures and ways of interacting that are no longer serving us
What you can do to create deeper understanding, build trust and relationships and increase connection so your results and outcomes improve
How to increase your capacity to lead brave, honest conversations
