Leading Across Our Political Divides

Are you hungry for ways to impact the painful divide that has developed between Reds and Blues? Join us in exploring differences across the political divide. Crossing this divide will enable you to work together to solve problems you face in your community, and create many opportunities to enrich your community. To change your relationships with “others,” you will practice skills to improve communication and deepen understanding. By the end of the workshop, you will feel more comfortable talking with people on the opposite side of the political divide in your community.

Successful outcomes for this workshop:

Participants will understand the values differences between Reds and Blues, how we develop moral values, and how they impact our relationships across the political divide.

Participants will gain communications skills: Using “I” Messages, and forming questions to deepen understanding.

Participants will feel more comfortable talking with people on the opposite side of the political divide in their community.

Participants will be excited to try out the ideas they’ve explored here.
