A WORKSHOP TO BRING US BACK TOGETHER AGAIN You're invited to a life-changing civility workshop. Come and learn the skills to create compassion and respect in the face of disagreement and walk away with more hope. The skill set will be shared and safely practiced in this workshop. (No courage needed!) The idea here is not to change mindsets but to understand mindsets. We find ways to understand the anatomy of a person's belief system and see more than what we saw before. The goal is not about creating agreement but rather understanding. Spending these two hours together will be rich. What you can expect to get from this workshop: Feeling compassion, respect, and understanding toward those you felt were wrong. Increased ability to work with others who disagree with you on important topics and to find the common ground.
Your facilitator Dr. Kelli Pearson is uniquely positioned to facilitate this workshop. She is certified in Immunity to Change, Intrinsic coaching, has completed the training in Non-Violent communication, and has studied personally with Dr. David Reilly, a master in the art of listening. She is very comfortable with conflict and finds great reward in finding the common denominator, seeing the value of opening the heart towards your fellow man in compassionate understanding. The 5 best gifts to give another human: The gift of giving your full attention, your kindness, not judging, spending time, and giving a compliment. All of these will be practiced in this workshop.
Here are what other are saying: "Dr. Pearson's Civility Workshop is for anyone who would like to understand any perspective rather than always being right. This class is about being open to new ideas and what is possible. I learned that instead of listening, I am just waiting to say something snarky to make them wrong." "Thank you again for the eye-opening, incredible class last night. After the class I was still in such an energy rush I could barely sleep even after telling my husband all that I had learned. Your energy and genuine warmth are infectious. You taught me new ways of communicating with others. You gave me the confidence to be heard, to listen, and to be authentic in both."
"Whether people agree or not agree with you, it has absolutely nothing to do with you. It's all about them. The things they see and hear in you are mirroring back at what is already within them. Don't take it personally. Engage in a safe conversation to better understand."
