Reframing Power and Inclusivity in the 21st Century: A Meeting of Minds and Hearts for Professionals is a two-day weekend workshop that brings together Joe Weston’s, Respectful Confrontation and Juanita Range’s, Race, Power, Equity, and Forward Movement.

The two facilitators offer views and tools to go deeper in managing power dynamics, communication, and inner and outer peace. This workshop creates a powerful, engaging experience for participants that generate personal, professional, and societal benefits. The 21st century will not accommodate business as usual. Gain tools to be effective in forward movement as a leader, and as an individual.

Saturday, May 19: 9 am – 6 pm

This training offers a number of tools for tackling challenging situations with integrity and clarity leading to improved effectiveness and influence at work and at home, mindful communication, deepening of relationships and collaborations, and resolution of misunderstandings and increased trust.

This training will also shift and reframe views on confrontation, assertiveness, and true power leading to greater self-confidence and peaceful interactions with others. The combination of theory, dynamic exercises, martial arts principles and applicable life tools result in a noticeable shift in behavior and deeper insight into yourself.

Sunday, May 20: 9 am – 4 pm

Be guided into deeper thought, honest and vulnerable examination of self and lived realities. Participants learn to align good intentions with outcomes which increase empowerment as individuals and as influencers. Together we practice leaning into and through social tension and discomforts that face us day to day.

This comprehensive interactive workshop examines how we interact and identify as people. Race, gender, class, and power structures effect our beliefs and actions. Uncover new perspectives and increase skill to communicate and engage effectively with difficult discussions and decision making around race, oppression, and difficult discussions as leaders and in your day to day life.

RPE& FM is co facilitated with Michael Hulshof-Schmidt, MSW

This session ends with bringing the principles of both approaches together to find new and productive ways to address both personal and societal issues.

We don’t talk about our hearts in workplace environments, that doesn’t mean our hearts aren’t impacting us. Heart and mind dynamics associated with social challenges are real. Liberation requires us to be open and honest, to learn the value and power in vulnerability. Grow personally and professionally, become more effective in relationships, engagements, performance, and decision making.

Reframing Power and Inclusivity in the 21st Century empowers participants to unite current realities and demands then create forward movement in both.

Stand, Making Discoveries and Applying Compassionate Solutions for Human Issues, Race and Unconscious Bias

Juanita Range is a mediator, facilitator, and coach. She coaches relationships, not romantic relationships, but human/life relationships. Her work supports clients to discover, strengthen, release, and connect life components that impact how we show up in the world.

Juanita is skilled in conflict management, change and innovation management, leadership development, and management/supervisory development.  She is currently a student of Portland State University’s Urban Honors program where she is increasing depth and breadth of knowledge gained as a seasoned professional through academic mastery in areas of Communication, Organizational Behavior, Leadership, and Sociology. Juanita also provides volunteer service to Multnomah County District Court Small Claims Mediation program, and previously volunteered her mediation and negotiation skills to the pilot of Clackamas County Small Claim Court program.

Her more than 20 years experience in business relations, consultative sales, interpersonal communication, and interest based negotiations cultivated the foundation for her current work and projects. Her focus on solutions allowed her to successfully manage small and large territories of up to 13 states, successfully master multi-million dollar individual and team goals, and most importantly to build cohesion and positive synergy within team environments.

Juanita’s philosophy is that one way or another, everything in life is in relationship. She focuses primarily on three powerful human behaviors and dynamics; communication, conflict, and creativity. She shares how these human behaviors are also potent tools for empowerment and block removal. She frames her work around these philosophies along with her understanding that as humans we are intricate beings, and when we learn to balance these intricacies, we excel. Juanita’s focus on shared human relationships allows her to attend to sensitive topics like race and unconscious bias with compassion, kindness, and understanding. She approaches this work with a No Shame – No Blame approach and invites participants to “go a little deeper”.

Juanita supports individuals, couples, and organizations to find and remove blocks and attain alignment and balance between intentions and outcomes.
