Common Ground!

With Kathy Ziola

Saturday 16th, 1:00pm - 5:00pm

An afternoon of discovering our common humanity through compassionate listening and expressing. This workshop will be experiential as we build the consciousness and skills that support tolerance, respect and collaboration.

Are you ……

  • Struggling to understand how “anyone can think that way?
  • Having more conflict than you can manage?
  • Frustrated with disconnection from people that matter to you?
  • At a loss for how to create connection in your community or organizational work?
  • Longing for some common ground for understanding and collaboration?

This workshop will help you experience, understand and practice…

  • Cooling your hot buttons
  • Finding the heart of our shared humanity
  • Powerful listening
  • Honoring differences
  • Having conversations that deeply connect

Now more than ever before we are in dire need of finding ways to communicate work through our challenges peacefully. It is pretty hard to do when anger and judgment stand between us as an impermeable wall of protection. A model for connecting through our differences exists and is available to you right now.

Join Kathy Ziola for an afternoon of experiential learning to build skills and consciousness that will support you in approaching difficult conversations with more understanding and peace. Find the common ground that will help you decrease conflict and enable you to collaborate more effectively.

Foundations: Based in the work of Nonviolent Communication/Compassionate Communication founded by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD.

Facilitated by: Kathy Ziola, MA, Certified Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication.

Who is it for: People interested in finding common ground with others with whom there are differences and challenges in connecting.

What to Bring: An open mind and heart and a willingness to stretch, learn, participate and try new things.
