Deep Dive Study Group: Transforming Conflict into Peaceful Collaboration- Your Words Matter!

Description: Team collaboration is an important part of what we do. How are we choosing to express ourselves to one another? Do we approach the team with compassion, empathy and understanding? Or do we come with blame, criticism and judgment. Your words matter! When a person understands and implements principles of compassionate communication and wise speech, this opens the doorway for more connected and enhanced relationships. By identifying your own feelings and needs of others, you can learn to really hear others, respond with more genuine sincerity and you can learn to have more acceptance. You can communicate peacefully in even the most challenging times. Principles of compassionate communication can be utilized in both your personal and professional life.
