A national reckoning. A time to enlighten and inspire positive action. Conversations like these are a start.
A global pandemic, massive unemployment, national division and unrest, a renewed battle to end racism – how can we start to overcome insecurity and strengthen ourselves and our community? It starts with a bit of courage and a lot of communication. Communication leads to understanding, understanding leads to compassion, compassion leads to never wanting to see another human being hurt. Spend some time – open, honest and non-judgmental – with the CreativeMornings/Omaha volunteer team and community as we navigate through feelings, facts and future conversations based on the book Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most by Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton and Sheila Heen. A special thanks to our facilitator Herbie Thompson, a communications professor at University of Nebraska-Omaha.
