FAN: Communicating Effectively Through Disagreement

  • Bubbles Academy 2184 North Elston Avenue Chicago, IL, 60614 United States (map)

We all have disagreements with others. It’s part of life. We can’t all like the same thing or be into the same thing. There is a part of us that think that our way is the only way. Or if someone doesn’t agree with us then clearly it’s their problem. We also spend more time trying to convince someone and what we end up doing is pushing them farther away. We don’t stop to listen to what they have to say. We are so busy justifying or rationalizing our point of view that we don’t recognize that the other person is valid in how they feel. And it’s also ok to have two different points of views. Crazy concept, I know. ;)

I’m partnering with the IWPA (Illinois Woman’s Press Association) to put this workshop on. Please join us. Open to members and non-members. ALL women & men are welcome.
