Compassionate Communication: Speak Peace in a World of Conflict

Things To Know

Edward Bok’s words and actions from more than 100 years ago continue to resonate. In his book Successward, he wrote it is important to start with knowing yourself. His firsthand observations of war inspired him to create a prize to further the cause of world peace. Today we face many challenges. This workshop will give you practical tools to turn down the volume and turn within. Explore a way of communicating designed to increase active listening and empathy skills. Learn how to move from blame and shame to curiosity and connection. Compassionate Communication promotes practical tools that can help you transform your relationship with yourself and others.
