The Art of Conversation

Conversation is being challenged by social media, changing values, and a lack of time. This course will focus on why conversation is important and how to make them more effective. To address the “how” of conversing, participants will practice in small groups how to start/stop a conversation; how to change direction; and tips on how to have that "difficult" conversation.
