3 Key Skills to Supercharge your Mediations
How can we supercharge our mediations? This training will discuss three essential skills to take your mediations to the next level. Developing the skills that enable us to facilitate difficult conversations, we will focus on joint session, caucus, and those moments when we just don’t know what to do next. In an interactive session we will work on our reflection, questioning, and caucus skills.
