Bridging the Communication Divide

To ensure that Earth remains hospitable to a wide diversity of life, including ourselves, humanity must grow beyond our current habits and ways of being. That growth happens most reliably and effectively through connections between people, connections that often involve difficult conversations across disparate viewpoints and varied values. Learning to welcome those conversations and to engage in them with more curiosity than conviction and more empathy than emphasis is a path toward the common ground that will lead us forward.  This talk will introduce a simple framework for engaging productively in the challenging and difficult conversations that lead to growth.  We'll take time to practice and reflect on how it works and where we might apply it.  

Karen Gimnig is a team builder, motivational speaker and relationship coach. She believes that our need for connection with the people around us guides us toward effective relationships.  She helps groups and individuals identify root causes of challenges and then walks beside them offering gentle support as they seek solutions, build trust and use simple (but not easy) tools for improved communication and relationships.
