Soup and civility on the menu tonight
The Soup & Civility discussion is 5:45-8 p.m. today, Monday May 1 at Denfeld High School, 401 N. 44th Ave. W. The public is invited to this free event which includes a dinner of soup and bread.
The discussion and training session based on “Speak Your Peace: The Civility Project” of the Community Foundation. Tonight's session will focus on the important skill of listening.
Too often listening is considered a "weak" strategy. But effective listening is vital to effective communication and community building. Trainers and the group will explore approaches that impede listening. They also will share techniques for how to be more effective listeners at a time when the ability to hear and understand differing perspectives is perhaps needed more than ever.
The event is in West Commons area on the first floor of Denfeld High School. Park in the school lot and enter through the main school doors. The West Commons area will be to your left.
