CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE: UNDERSTANDING AN OPINION THAT’S NOT YOUR OWN   

“There is nothing so confining as the prisons of our own perceptions.” William Shakespeare

Are you not talking or visiting with friends or family? Could it be that your perception has placed you in a self-made prison? This interactive class looks at origins of disagreements or misunderstandings and offers a suggestion to open the door for better understanding. We will learn more about ourselves rather than pointing out the other person’s issues. We will improve our understanding of others while avoiding thinking ill of them. How important is it to know why you feel so strongly about a situation or issue? We will discover how to ask focused questions and listen for the answers. We will learn how to better communicate and listen to such an extent that strangers may even thank us for taking time to chat with them. We will use a three-vowel system: AEO (assumptions, expectations, observations) and this system will guide us.

Consider this class as a tool to increase collaboration among friends and family of diverse views. This “Critical Perspective Workshop” helps you benefit from diverse viewpoints.

Recommended Book: Conner, Joe. Critical Perspective: Understanding an Opinion That’s Not Your Own.
