How to have difficult conversations with the people we love.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2019
UMC Aspen RooM, CU BOULDER
Limited to 50 people
Back by popular demand! Our November workshop sold out in 24 hours so we are offering another workshop on this important issue. Again, the workshop is free and limited to 50 participants.
Navigating difficult conversations can often feel treacherous, especially with loved ones. Emotions are high, voices are raised, silence becomes awkward. Understanding conflict, and learning to manage it effectively, can significantly impact the course these conversations take. In this workshop, you will begin to conceptualize conflict as an opportunity for growth by learning the different “languages” we use to engage with conflict, the factors that contribute to escalation, and strategies for de-escalation. In doing so, we can better advocate for our own needs while recognizing and understanding the needs of others. By shining a light on conflict we can step a little more confidently into the domain of difficult conversations.
This TEDxCUSalon will be guided by trained facilitators and led by Colin Johnson and Tyler Keyworth.
