"Persuade, Don't Preach: Restoring Civility Across the Political Divide" with Karen Tibbals
"Would you like to have Thanksgiving without yelling at your uncle about politics? How about spending the day with your in-laws on the opposite side of the aisle without walking on eggshells? Your best-friend from high-school? Your neighbor? Persuade, Dont' Preach gives you the tools to have productive conversations with those you don't agree with.
As a society, we've become so polarized, we barely know how to talk to each other anymore. When we disagree, we often preach. And then the other person freezes or explodes. We wind up even more polarized than we were to begin with. What's the key to get past this?
It all comes down to persuading instead of preaching. Karen Tibbals distills the latest social science research to create a practical plan for talking to others in a respectful way - a way that enables people to get past their differences."
