GovExec Daily: Managing Dialogues Outside Your Bubble
University of California, Santa Barbara's Dr. Tania Israel joins the podcast to give tips on having meaningful conversations with people who may not agree with you.
The political and social divides in the United States are deep and can affect relationships with family, friends and coworkers. In an election year that has been marked by a pandemic and calls for racial justice, how can people bridge these deep divides between those they may not share values.
Dr. Tania Israel is a professor of counseling psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the author of the book Beyond Your Bubble: How to Connect Across the Political Divide. She joined the program to discuss how to have meaningful dialogue with those who may see the world through a very different lens.
