We live in a world saturated with conflict. People are at odds about pretty much everything from when to order a taxi to the airport to whether there should there be a caliphate to the right way to cook lasagne. While disagreement can be civilised, interesting and productive, too often it is a source of misery.
This session helps us to disagree better. This doesn’t mean being right more often, rather having a better understanding of why we disagree, what’s at stake and how we can find ways to move forward. You’ll have the chance to interrogate your own beliefs and consider how to change your own mind. You'll also explore other people's perspectives. You’ll learn to be more persuasive, when to speak out and when to hold back with wisdom.
ABOUT Core CLASSES
Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.
These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture, conversation and group activity. Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.
This class is part of our EQ Certificate Programme. For more information about how to enrol at The School of Life please click here
