What do Trained Leaders Get?
“Recently, I was in a meeting at work where a lot of complaining was going on. The moment felt right, so I jumped in: “I’ve learned that underneath every complaint is a need that isn’t being met. Can we rephrase our complaints into needs?” Everyone was looking at me like “Wow, what a concept.” One person, and then another, went for it. Safe Conversations really changed the tone of the meeting.”Dalia
“The simple, straight-forward structure of Safe Conversations can truly be a life-changing platform for veterans and their families, especially for those returning from conflict and who suffer from PTSD. These veterans have often experienced terrible things in defending freedom and they struggle to communicate with their families, the work place, and society at large.”Cary Clayborn
“Safe Conversations can be used between husband and wife, parents and children. But more than that, it can be used with your neighbors, between your community and other communities. That is where we need the most healing.”Hind Jarrah
“Attending the Safe Conversations workshop is like cleaning the windows for the first time. You may think your view is great. In reality, you have no idea how much better it can be! Whether family, coworkers, patients, complete strangers, or even my five-year-old son, the Safe Conversations tools make a world of difference.”Malie
