“Out beyond ‘too nice’ and ‘not so nice’, there is a field, I’ll meet you there.”

  • Do you find yourself leading discussions where really important things, things that impact your bottom line, go unsaid? 
  • Would you like to grow your capacity to welcome diversity?
  • Do you experience exclusion or see how certain social norms and systems make it hard to include everyone at the table of power?
  • Do you want to talk about racial justice but do not know where to begin?

Join us for a Learning Lab + a vacation beyond Minnesota Nice.  The Learning Lab will be led by Tom Esch and will be reflections on what he’s learned in facilitating 7 courageous conversations in the past 7 months.

Then we will have a “Beyond Nice” conversation.  These are practice conversations designed for all who want more inclusion and diversity, and are willing to practice being more direct.  These events will give you the opportunity to experience first-hand what it looks like to venture beyond the normal-nice type of communication we experience in conflict-reticent cultures.
