A Participative Webinar
During the webinar the cohosts, Nancy Dixon and Linda Ellinor, will interview Bill to provide an overview of his thinking. We will then move participants into small groups for reflections on Bill’s interview and how his experience has meaning in our lives and work with Dialogue. To close our time we’ll come back together with questions and reflections from our small groups.
