Event Details

Having a conversation about conflicting opinions is not easy. We've all heard about the benefits of embracing diverse opinions and perspectives: They make us better team leaders, more creative problem solvers, and more empathic partners. But disagreement can feel very uncomfortable—even stressful—despite our genuine desire to have open and inclusive conversations.

How can we identify the personal skills and practices that allow us to navigate those difficult situations in productive and successful ways?

Find out by participating in a FREE workshop developed by THE SECOND SCIENCE PROJECT (SSP), in a groundbreaking collaboration between the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and The Second City. Developed by behavioral scientists and improvisational theatre experts, this workshop will guide you through a behavioral science-based improvisational exercise designed to cultivate skill in navigating the challenges of disagreement. You and others in your workplace can try out personal practices designed to support inclusivity!
