It’s Not Me, It’s You – Changing Defensive Communication™


3rd Thursday, May 17, 2018, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

We all know defensiveness when someone acts defensive towards us – and when we are defensive with others. It can be hard to see past defensiveness and know how to navigate it. Come learn all about defensive communication – why we do it, what we can do instead, and how to move ourselves and others beyond a defensive communication climate.

Join us Thursday, May 17th, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and leave prepared for more positive communication!
