Facilitator Marty Epstein, MS, trainer, coach, and mediator.
Communication is at the core of every family, friendship, and organization. When we learn a better way to speak and listen, we can mend broken relationships and build new ones, because we understand both sides of the situation and can speak our truth with confidence. With 10 years’ experience in teaching nonviolent communication and graduate training at Columbia University in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, as well as 20 years’ experience in the corporate world of international finance, Marty is well qualified to share with us an empathy-based system of communication in this interactive and experiential workshop. Effective conversation can be learned, and we can continue to build ethical relationships. As he says, “Our ability to speak our truth, and listen effectively to others, is the foundation of our successful lives as human beings.”
