Remembering Ray Shonholtz

Brad Heckman- This week we lost a great peacebuilding visionary and pioneer, Raymond Shonholtz.  I, along with many others, lost a friend, teacher, partner and mentor.

Myth #2: There's no time!

Jason Dykstra- Let me guess, you run your own company, you do the books, the marketing, the administrative work, and you have to actually do your job on top of that.  You have your social life, your home life, and you're in charge of walking the dog.  You think to yourself regularly, "Man...I wish there were 26 hours in a day." You got to take care of yourself, eat, go to the gym, take your partner on a date, spend time with the kids, the list goes on and on and on.  You have no time to use Social Media.  None.

Cinnie Noble- Many of us think we have to win disagreements – that we have to be and be seen as right and that the other person is wrong and has to concede to our viewpoint.  The competitive underpinnings to this approach set up a win-lose scenario and this isn’t usually an optimum way for reconciling conflict differences.
