A Good Conversation

A good conversation connects people, builds relationships, normalizes conflict, creates community, heals wounds, and brings peace.  During good conversations, people experience empathy, share facts information, and perspective to gain understanding.

Radical Collaboration

Radical Collaboration, a book written by James W. Tamm, a former judge and expert on dispute resolution; and Ronald J. Luyet, a licensed psychotherapist, is a catalyst for building more effective work environments and more trusting relationships.  Collaboration requires both a skill-set and a mindset, both of which can be learned. The book teaches five skills that are essential for building collaborative environments. It offers practical skills that are immediately useful.   Book-based workshop with optional FIRO-B assessment

Gifts Differing and Conflict

Sometimes people have difficulty in getting along with each other.  This difficulty could be based on Myers Briggs type preferences for how they direct their energy, gather information, make decisions, and deal with the environment.  When people become aware that the disagreement, the irritation may be based in those preferences then disagreement suddenly becomes less irritating, and even appreciated as an asset.

Building Bridges to Understanding

This practical, interactive workshop is for people who want to strengthen their ability to work with people of different appearance, background, belief, and tradition.   It provides a safe way to explore the complex, powerful issues surrounding diversity in four areas: knowledge, understanding, acceptance, and behavior.

Dialogue

Experience discovery and learning in community. Dialogue provides a non-confrontational way to connect with others through inquiry and disclosure. Dialogue changes the quality of interaction and relationships. Participants learn to listen, observe, reflect, and respond to what is happening in the moment. Ask the right questions for greater clarity, commitment and creativity.

Mediating Your Way Through Conflict

This guide offers resources and practices to help you defuse conflict, reconcile differences, maintain and renew relationships.   Develop a repertoire of approaches and alternative behaviors to mediate various conflict situations.
