Special League Training: From Conflict to Conversation, Practical Skills for Better Public Dialogue

Must disagreement be disagreeable? The answer is no – but achieving a productive and trustful exchange requires careful planning plus some in-the-heat-of-the-moment skills. From high-profile public sessions to small stakeholder groups, this session offers pragmatic lessons for designing and conducting meetings and other public-involvement processes that activate listening and spark collaborative problem solving. This session will also showcase examples of creative listening and inclusive engagement practices from communities around the State of Arizona.
