TURN CHALLENGES INTO CONVERSATIONS WORTH HAVING

The nature of our conversation is fateful. The way we think and talk about any given situation determines whether we feel energized and good about it, or drained and exhausted. Grounded in the book, Conversations Worth Having: Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement, Monday Kickstarters invites participants to transform negative, problematic, and stressful interactions they are experiencing into life-giving and generative conversations.

We are living in challenging times, many of us juggle stress, concerns, and challenges daily. We can move forward in ways that offer renewal, reinvention, and resiliency simply by changing our conversations.

MONDAY KICKSTARTERS OVERVIEW:

Monday Kickstarters is a 4-part virtual series designed to provide you the opportunity to practice asking generative questions to change the way you think about things, interact with others, and create a possibility mindset by talking about what you want instead of what you don’t want. The two practices—generative questions and positive framing–allow you to address even the most challenging problems with creativity and energy.

You do not need to attend all 4 sessions to benefit from this virtual series. Please feel free to pop in and out of these sessions as necessary. We encourage you to invite your friends, families, and colleagues who may benefit from these sessions – all are welcome to participate. You only need to register once to participate in the four (4) weekly sessions.

  • Shift your mindset to foster resilience and positivity;
