Cultivating Culture: Holding Space for Purposeful Dialogue

Wed, Nov 4, 2020, 4:30 PM (CST)

About this event

Now more than ever, it is critical that we hold conversations that invoke possibilities and provide sacred space for us to collectively move forward. Whether you are with your family, in a community or on your work teams, your ability as an influencer to hold space for dialogue is essential to becoming a culture champion.

Sadly, holding space for such conversations is vanishing, along with the art of deep listening and authentic expression. To be a cultural leader in today’s world, we need to be able hold space even when conflict may be present.

At the end of the session, participants will…

- Apply tools and best practices to create and hold space for profound and progressive conversations

- Understand the various elements, attributes and nuances of “holding space”

- Describe what it means / look like to personally “hold space” for others

Culture First MKE invites you to join us for an engaging session that leverages best practice sharing and personal reflection to help you hold space for you and others and lean into the critical conversations that will collectively move our culture forward.
