During this Sunday Gathering, we will discuss key ingredients in holding a hard conversation with skill. The intensity of our times requires that we each build the muscles to lean into hard conversations to solve our most challenging problems. We each need both a strong back to stand up for what matters to us AND a soft front that allows us the ability to listen (maybe even be influenced) by people who think and feel differently from us. Let's explore what may be getting in our way and brainstorm approaches to help us speak more courageously and with integrity.
