Focus On: Connection with Agency

what it’s all about


Connecting with agency means bringing an empathetic and collaborative tone to the conversation – without abandoning your wants, needs, or sense of self. This is about creating an environment where everyone can feel heard and safe, and dialogue is welcome. You’re in the right place if you’ve mastered the basics, and you’re ready to dive deeper into your empathy, and your sense of personal agency.
