CDI has engineered a model of interpersonal communication that builds courage and confidence to step into the arena of any difficult conversation with grace and skill. The 3-day training was structured in a way that participants shared their personal experiences with racism, oppression and other challenges rooted in power differences. The incremental approach to skill building provided real-time opportunities to practice the coaching skills and sequences taught. The community created in the training was a bonus, and offered just the right mix of support and challenge to grow my skills and perspective so that I may become a better agent of change in my efforts to empower others.
