Civity: Train the Leaders Workshop - Online

Small Towns

Cost: Free

When: Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Where: Online

About: Join this training to learn how to deepen conversations. We’ll explore storytelling and story-listening, putting differences on the table, and folding in conversation across differences, whether it be in community gatherings, the workplace, small-group, or one-on-one conversations.

Using the Civity Method, we explore engaging in deeper conversation across differences with empathy, respect, and civility. We look at transitioning from an “us and them” mindset to an inclusive “us” mindset. 

When people have the sense that they are in this together—when they feel confident reaching  out to and connecting with others—differences become springboards rather than barriers.
