In fractious times, it can be difficult to have a conversation with neighbors who don’t agree with you. Many worry about consequences of speaking their mind or that others might react negatively if concerns are shared.

“Difficult Conversations: The Art and Science of Working Together” is a free workshop offering a powerful set of research-based principles and strategies that will allow participants to engage in meaningful dialogue with anyone — regardless of social or ideological differences. Focusing on the question “Who do we need to be to have the conversations we need to have?” this workshop seeks to help participants gain a greater understanding of the personal dynamics that turn conversations into conflicts and how we can transform any negative interaction into a creative and constructive engagement. Join this workshop and increase your capacity for connection, creativity and collaboration.

This two and a half hour virtual workshop will take place via zoom on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 10:30 a.m. Space is limited. To receive the link for this event, sign up via the library calendar at Contact Jacqueline Luna, Adult Services Librarian, at 619-522-2479 or with any questions.
