NISPA is excited that our 2019 Welcome Breakfast will take place at The York School on Tuesday the 17th of September.
We invite you to join us for speaker Kirsten Siggins’ presentation on
“The Power Of Curiosity: How To Stay Calm, Cool & Connect In Conflict”.
Kirsten Siggins believes communicating effectively at work and home should never be hard. After 10 years working in the Entertainment Industry (London, UK & Los Angeles, CA) and coaching professional clients, she had an “ AHA” moment; everyone struggles with communication skills, especially in conflict. These are skills that are expected of leaders & parents and yet never taught, and it holds them back.
With the birth of her first child, Kirsten gained a greater appreciation of the importance of communication as a parent, and the deep influence it has on the development of our children as leaders.
Together with her mother, Kathy Taberner, they founded the Institute Of Curiosity offering workplace communication training for professionals, as well as home training for parents & teens. Their unique communication framework, rooted in curiosity, keeps leaders & parents calm, cool & connected in every conversation — even in conflict.
After 17 years in LA, Kirsten and her family recently moved to Toronto to give their kids a “normal” life.
Kirsten Siggins is a TEDx speaker and has been featured in Inc.com, Huff Post Blog, Parent Magazine, Mom’s Magazine, Smart Coos, Overthinking Conflict, Vancouver Breakfast Television among others. Kirsten is the co-author of The Power Of Curiosity: How To Have Real Conversations That Create Collaboration, Innovation & Understanding.
