Power Talks Mondays

May 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free Workshop Series on developing powerful communication skills that emphasize our communication power through conversations.

POWER TALK MONDAYS are free sessions open to the public where participants explore and practice communication techniques to strengthen dialogues at home, work and/or school.  Each week a facilitator leads participants in a short learning segment demonstrating a communication tool then participants engage in an interactive practice demonstrating the learned technique. 

All sessions are on Mondays from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm.  

This project was inspired by the “On The Table” initiative.
