Our political debates, newspaper headlines, and internet comments are all too often stripped of nuance and a sense of shared humanity. Too many public conversations are stuck in polarized language of confrontation and certainty. We need new ways to foster dialogue with people across lines of religion, politics, ethnicity, and experience.
In the Udemy course “Acumen Presents: Krista Tippett on the Art of Conversation“, you’ll learn about Krista’s practices for becoming a generous listener and she’ll impart lessons from some of the most skillful conversationalists of our time. She’ll help you shift from caring only about issues to caring about the people you are conversing with. You’ll leave the course with an understanding of how you can approach your next conversation with a renewed sense of wonder and humility, rather than certainty or absolutism. Her collected wisdom will galvanize anyone looking to spark meaningful dialogue across lines of difference in the service of social change.
