This is a show for women about women and Barbara Blackstone will take us into tricky territory--the importance of negotiation, especially for women. After years of experience in public, private, non-profit, and academic settings, Barbara Blackstone created Blackstone Associates to focus on teaching women to speak up for themselves, overcome hidden obstacles, negotiate for their own needs and wants, and handle conflicts with confidence. A workplace pioneer, Barbara was one of the "first" women to hold numerous high positions she was given in her field, so she knows what it is like to work in environments where gender matters. She has made many of the mistakes that currently hold women back from negotiating for themselves. Because women are not generally taught to negotiate, we will go deep into the very basics of negotiation and why women have missed out on this crucial training.
Barbara is the former Director of the Office of Dispute Resolution for the State of Minnesota and currently is an adjunct instructor of negotiation and conflict management for Marylhurst University in Oregon. Blackstone holds a master’s degree in Urban Studies from Roosevelt University in Chicago. Join me and my friend Barbara Blackstone and discover that you might be better at negotiating than most people think. (Pre-recorded)
Talking about religion is tricky business, and yet, our spiritual beliefs are usually our most important beliefs. But many people have such a hard time communicating these important beliefs and values, often leaving a huge hole in their need to be heard. Have you ever noticed that it is easy to "speak" about your beliefs but less easy to "hear" another's? Join me and my good friend and fellow spiritual traveler, Anita Acuna, as we try speaking and listening about each other's spiritual beliefs, pointing out why speaking about something so personal is difficult. Anita and I will explore our different spiritual paths and religious experiences, attempting to bring the light of listening and the healing it affords into the often dark corners of voicelessness for those who stray from society’s accepted religious traditions. Join Anita and I in two weeks and hear a candid and thoughtful conversation about all things spiritual from our unique perspectives.
