What we're about

Learn practical skills to improve your ability to compassionately communicate - especially when it really matters. Develop fluency in empathy, speak in a way that makes it easier for others to "get" you, and learn how to handle the triggers and judgments that often make connection difficult. Weekly, we'll focus on specific practice points to make skill-building fun and accessible through discussion, stories, role-plays, and exercises. You'll begin to understand why you connect the way you do in your important relationships, and how to make micro-shifts that have a big impact... at work and at home.

- Would you like to express yourself with greater clarity and compassion, especially with people who don’t seem to “get” you?
- Do you sometimes struggle to hold your ground - compassionately - when conversations get tense?
- Do you avoid conflicts because you lack the tools to resolve differences peacefully? Or charge through conflicts in ways that strain relationships?
- Is it hard for you to collaborate with people you disagree with?
- Would you like some freedom from your own inner-critic?
