New Workshop: Making Conversation across Human Differences
Participants in workshops have shown interest in learning how to connect better across differences. They are asking for practical information ranging from what to say to start the conversation, what topics are ok and what to do if you accidentally offend someone. In response, I am working on a new workshop that will offer steps, tips and information to make this easier, and help people enter into these conversations with confidence.

Getting Comfortable with Discomfort: Bridging Differences for Greater Effectiveness
Remember irreconcilable differences... At work when we bump into the differences we have with other people, this can cause discomfort. Our normal human reaction is to avoid what is uncomfortable and avoid conflict, however this reaction reduces our human effectiveness. In this workshop, strengthen your ability to work through discomfort for better relationships and better work results.
