About this

Do you freeze when you think about talking with ex-partner or with your teen?
Is the thought of facilitating a meeting with a combative audience paralyzing?
Does your boss’ mere presence cause you to shut down at the thought of a
difficult conversation?
Do you often feel defensive when someone challenges your point of view?
Relationships are essential to the
quality of our work life, our home life, and in our community. As individuals
seeking self improvement or professional development, or as practitioners of
public engagement, we need the skills to deal with people on the small,
everyday matters as well as the elephants in the room. But how?
kind of dialogue do you find most challenging?

SMART Conversations® is a conversation style characterized by four core

SM- Shared Meaning – Are we talking about the same thing?

Authenticity – Are we being “real” with each other?

Respect – Can we respect all perspectives?

Trust – Are we able to trust that everyone has good intentions?
When these conditions are present,
you’ll be able to listen to the perspectives of others, express your point of
view, build better relationships, and learn from others.
Dialogue is a foundational skill that
can transform your conversations and give you the tools to communicate with
authenticity, respect, and trust. In this webinar, you’ll gain exposure to
action dialogue and learn what it is, what it isn’t, and how it can help you in
your personal and professional life.

Whether you wish to learn a new skill to communicate with your teenager more
productively, engage a group of stakeholders around an initiative, or hold more
effective public engagement meetings, SMART Conversations® is a particular
brand of dialogue that will bring your effectiveness to a new level.

In this webinar, you’ll also be introduced to the “Belief Map,” a valuable tool
that challenges your filters, and helps you question your negative beliefs to
shift to a place of curiosity and dialogue.

If you could benefit from this
practical approach to dialogue, please join us for our July 26 webinar.
