be courageous and cool

be courageous and cool

This is about leaving the comfort zone, about imagining building bridges and about experimenting what we could say and do in certain conflict situations.

We develop and perform workshops “be courageous and cool” to inform about the basic theories of constructive communication, escalation and de-escalation, conflict diagnosis, self-reflexion, empathy – and to experiment all this in practical exercises. We simulate situations with heavy conflicts and develop playful possible reactions.

We define the ability of constructive disputing in conflict situations as a competence, which is basic for all citizens in a democracy. The development of democracies needs – as an important competence – the ability of constructive handling of differences. Conscious awareness of self reflective, mindful, constructive and empathic thinking, talking and doing needs to be activated.
