Peaceful Communication 

Kelsey Visser 

Many of us have heard about the value of empathy in our personal and professional lives but struggle with understanding how to actually effectively offer empathy to someone else in difficult situations when it really counts. In this workshop, you will explore your typical "go-to" conflict resolution style, examine blocks to empathy, and then learn (and practice!) practical tools to offer empathy to both yourself and others.
