All humans habitually categorize and group others who are “different” from “us,” which often lends to black and white thinking, as in “good” versus “bad” or “native” versus “immigrant” and a host of other isolating labels.
With this presentation, Ellen (Ellie) Krug offers a toolset—Gray Area Thinking™—for interacting with diverse humans in a mindful and compassionate way.
Attendees will appreciate and value how it’s necessary to consciously work to “Think Gray!”™ Gray Area Thinking™ is a simple three-part toolset for interacting with diverse humans:
- Awareness of another human’s vulnerability or suffering;
- Risk-taking to alleviate or lesson that vulnerability or suffering; and
- Compassion and kindness for both self and others.
