We’ll explore what happens when disagreements about politics and other issues that have become divisive come up and see why they so often end in frustration, silence, or shouting (or all three!). Learn how to speak and listen in a way that is more helpful and gives everyone a chance to be heard. Bryn Hazell is passionate about people learning to speak across our cultural divides and create more understanding and respect for us all. We’ll take real-world situations and through the skills of Compassionate Communication see how they can be transformed into discussions that connect us rather than debates that divide us.
