"We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their behavior."

Stephen M.R. Covey
Business leader, author, speaker
 

The mission of People Beyond Politics™ is to create a growing community of people who engage around ideas rather than ideologies; who use skills for constructive dialogue; and who lead inclusively, welcoming not only marginalized people but also challenging viewpoints.

Nationwide, we are engaged in a political tug-of-war, with power shifting back and forth between left and right, and each side seeking to undermine the other. This keeps us in perpetual motion, but with little significant advancement.

Cohesion takes more than respectful discussion, where we politely take turns. It requires dialogue in which we trust each other enough to be both candid and vulnerable. To be heard we must first hear the other.

Participation in this community is open to all. The only requirement is a willingness to stretch oneself and explore the experiences of the other. Join us at the next Engaging With Difference® session to learn pivotal skills that transform interactions.
