Heidi Harris - Applied Behavioral Science Expert - The Emotionality of Polarization

May 26, 2020

How do we get through this when we’re all so angry and sure we’re right? What’s coming next?

The ability to create understanding between people is crucial for relationships. It's especially important in today's heightened environment of polarization. Our emotional reactions can lead to defensiveness, anger, and divisiveness, or to deeper human connectedness, dialogue, and collaboration. The choice is ours. Heidi provides insights and tools for coming out of this with relationships intact.
