Helping each other discover the up side of disagreement and conflict though authentic interaction is a pathway to solutions


My lifeWORK is to enrich people’s understanding of human communication—within themselves, with others, and with the circumstances they encounter day in and out. It is in the context of our everyday communication interactions that we participate, consciously or not, in co-creating the realities we inhabit—good, bad and otherwise—at home, in our workplaces, communities, country and world.
