CCL February Meeting with Celia Paris

February 10, 2018

Our February guest was Celia Paris, Assistant Professor in Political Science at Loyola University. She is currently working on a book manuscript that explores whether Madisonian ideals for deliberative and collaborative political decision-making have lost their appeal. Titled Madison’s ABCs: Why the Public Still Values Accomplishment, Bipartisanship, and Civility in Congress, her book argues that the desire for a more Madisonian approach to politics remains alive and well in the American public and that citizens value accomplishment, bipartisanship, and civility.

Citizens’ Climate University: When Others Drop the Ball- Responding in a Supportive Manner that Inspires Action (Audio)

February 8, 2018

Audio Only: Have you ever been in a place where you’ve agreed to do things that you didn’t do? Similarly, have you ever been on the other side of this equation, where someone has agreed to do something to help your group but that doesn’t happen?

This webinar provides support, perspective and ideas for responding to these situations in a manner that embodies the CCL values of relationships, personal power, integrity and optimism.

Join CCL Pacific Northwest Regional Coordinator and Integral Life Coach Tamara Staton for advice on what to consider before, during and after having these conversations. If we are intentional about our responses and aware of what comes up for us when a miscommunication happens, it’s more than possible to respond in a supportive manner that inspires action.
