Patty shares insights about the idea of having conversations. Meaningful discussions on difficult topics. How can we learn about things that are new to us if we refuse to listen? How can we listen if the language and dialogue is toxic?
How do we change hearts and minds?
Ideas, especially core values and long-held beliefs are often ingrained. Being challenged to see things in a new way can feel like who we are – not just what we believe – is being attacked.
There is reason to be hopeful.
This episode will help you see new ways to listen, respond and engage. Patty shares a very personal story in the hope that you can see how having a different view can come with good intentions.
The most difficult topics can be discussed if you are willing to come from a place of love and care and respect. Bringing that into our conversations will not always ensure alignment but it can be possible to see the person. Really see them and value them even if you don’t agree with them.
This is how we move forward.
It’s how we learn to create change.
