Do you feel scared, overwhelmed or outraged when you see the threats we are facing to the very essence of our democracy? How can we engage in productive, respectful dialogue with people who don’t see the danger or are invested in taking away the rights of others? It’s hard not to feel superior and try to convince people who support Trump and our current Congress, but this common approach is likely to further alienate them. In a fast-paced day with Sharon Strand Ellison, creator of the Powerful Non-Defensive Communication process, you can learn how to prompt others to drop their defenses and voluntarily shift their positions.
