Living in the Tension – Mon. April 9

For our next Living in the Tension gathering, we will be wrapping up our examination of conflict resolution by discussing three areas of practical application, starting with a look at what makes a real apology and how they are effective. We will discuss the five biggest mistakes people make when engaged in conflict and wish finish up with a model for engaging in a difficult conversation when you are faced with a conflict. These practical, every day principles can help anyone deal more effectively with the conflicts they face.

You can join us for this session on conflict resolution on Monday, April 9th, at 7pm. We will be meeting on 5241 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120.

Much love.
