Communicate across ideological divides
Challenges to communication that stem from ideological divides can occur in families, firms, and in the boardroom. They can emerge in decisions ranging from investing to charitable giving to hiring. Consider the following example: A family wants to make a decision about where to make a sizable donation. The adult children would like to give to the ACLU because of its strong support for DACA. The parents are hesitant because of the ACLU’s recent departure from unqualified support for free speech. All discussions on the topic end in bitter arguments and the two groups can’t seem to find any common ground.
Communication challenges such as this one require a customized solution. For this reason, we offer individual and small group consulting in other formats to meet your needs. This includes possibilities for longer-term collaborations with continuing education and reinforcement. Please reach out for more information.
