Community Building Workshop October 27-29, 2020 

Please join us for a Community Building Workshop based on the groundbreaking work of M. Scott Peck, MD, bestselling author of The Road Less Traveled


People interested in personal and professional development, and in particular those interested in promoting civility, creating a welcoming community, and building genuine collaborations within Knoxville and East Tennessee communities, are encouraged to attend.

 This workshop can help you:

  • Listen in a new way and be more fully present to self and others
  • Overcome superficiality and obstacles to authentic communication
  • Bridge differences with respect and form genuine collaborations
  • Experience “unusual safety” and “extraordinary respect” with fellow participants
  • Overcome isolation or loneliness and build real connections with others

This workshop can help business, non-profit and community leaders to:

  • Build social capital and genuine relationships within diverse groups
  • Enhance leadership, team building, and employee engagement programs
  • Strengthen neighborhoods and restore civility 
  • Transform equity and inclusion programs
  • Improve client outcomes by motivating resistant clients and reducing the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)
