Complimentary webinar with Barry Johnson

Racism! Sexism! Poverty! Climate Crisis! – And-Thinking Can Help

Oct 29, 2020 at 1:00 PM ET

Join the Discussion with Barry Johnson

Recently we’re feeling more polarized than ever.

How did we get here and how do we address the polarization we’re experiencing? Is there a source or root cause of poverty, racism, and sexism? What approaches will support us to address challenges and more productively deal with issues like healthcare and climate change? 

Every day there is a new headline or social media post showing just how far apart we’ve all become. Issues that once sparked civil debate—including poverty, racism, sexism, politics, and climate change—now provoke grandstanding and shouting matches. How do we bring all of the opposing sides in our culture together for dialogue, learning, and change?

We don’t have all the answers, but we do have a process that changes thinking, sparks powerful conversation, and deepens our understanding. It’s called AND-thinking (also known as Polarity Thinking).

Join us on October 29th at 1 PM (ET) as we dive deeper into the concept of AND-thinking, and discover real-world techniques to bridge the divides that separate us and move towards understanding and healing. We’ll share concrete examples of how you can put AND-thinking into practice immediately.

 Are you ready to move from polarized to optimized?
