In any group or organization, the differences between the participants can be cause for conflict or a fertile opportunity for growth, insight and synergy. Our ability to listen across our difference is the key. Listening is often more difficult when conflict arises between us. Come experience some of the ways we listen to “the other” when friction arises. In cultivating listening skills, communities are able to strengthened decision making processes and reduced conflict. The practice of reflective listening creates understanding and bring down the walls that keep us apart. Join us on this listening journey!
