Dialogue or Discord combines communications training and lunch on Tuesday, October 2

Posted September 18, 2007

P O W E L L, W y o. - Rhonda Shipp will talk about "Dialogue or Discord: Better Communication for Better Results," at a two-hour training beginning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, in the Northwest College Center for Training and Development in Powell.

"We are a nation of problem-solvers," Shipp said. "When faced with a problem, we fix it. We may clash when my solution is different from your solution or my perspective is different from your perspective. Conflict is a normal part of human interaction. How do we deal with strongly held, diverse perspectives or very complex issues?"

Shipp answers that question in her "Dialogue or Discord" training by exploring situation mapping as a method for capturing the diversity and complexity of issues. She'll also show how reframing works as a way to "remove toxic language and move the conversation forward in a more productive and cooperative way."

The training costs $10 per person and includes lunch. Reservations must be made by Monday, Oct. 1.
