For Couples + Individuals: How to Fight Fair in Your Relationship

Wed, November 6, 2019 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST

Price: $20 - $25/pp

Location: Octave NYC (Bryant Park), 286 Madison Avenue, 22nd Floor, New York, NY 10017

We all know the feeling of approaching a topic with our partner and later wondering how and why the conversation escalated the way it did. This workshop will teach you how to approach a concern or issue in a sensitive and thoughtful way. By changing the way we approach uncomfortable conversations, we can better understand each other’s perspectives and leave the conversation with both sides feeling heard.

Through this workshop, Genny will share how to better communicate and listen so that our fights can be productive conversations rather than blowout arguments. Together you will learn about various communication styles and learn what works best for you and your partner. Our goal is to have you walk away with more empathy and understanding.

This workshop is open to all. Feel free to come with your romantic partner or attend solo. We welcome anyone who is looking to better communicate with a loved one.
