Why does everyone say they want to be a better listener?  

In our hearts, we know we must build empathy FIRST and THEN solve problems. 
The trouble is almost none of us receive this kind of training growing up, in school or from society.

We are at a critical crossroads and must reduce polarity and build cooperation if we are to survive and thrive.

Come. Listen.  Learn.

Feelings. Needs. Requests.

After our time together,
you will have tools you can use right away to improve your communication with others and perhaps more importantly improve the way you manage your own inner dialog.
