LASHRM January Meeting | Creating Empathy Through Conversation

  • 18 Jan 2023
  • 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Hybrid Meeting


Registration is closed

This is a hybrid event. In-person attendees will meet at Belle Square (232 3rd Street North, La Crosse, WI). Enter the doors at the corner of 3rd Street and Vine Street.

In this session, you'll learn from Rob Lawless, a man on a mission to spend 1 hour, 1:1, with 10,000 different people. You'll hear how he's run into his new friends in places far away from where he's met them, what he's learned from meeting the victim of a mass shooting and how he ended up flying in a plane that the pilot had built himself.

Furthermore, you'll practice connecting with each other using the FORD framework (family, occupation, recreation, dreams) in 1:1 breakouts! You'll learn the importance of goal setting in intentional connection, and afterwards will feel confident in unlocking the true potential of conversation!

During this meeting, the speaker will help us:

  • Identify the 3 levels of value of human connection (sense of belonging, perspective, future opportunities)
  • Utilize the FORD framework in getting to know new people
  • Incorporate goal setting and reflection to achieve and inspire intentional human connection

More about the Speaker:

On a mission to spend 1 hour, 1:1, with 10,000 different people, Rob Lawless speaks with an incredibly unique perspective. Over the last 7 years, he’s met over 5,100 people from across 85+ countries, sharing their stories on his Instagram, @robs10kfriends. He’ll inspire you to be more intentional about connection and to treat it as an experience rather than a transaction.

He has been featured by press sources like the Kelly Clarkson Show and the TODAY Show, and regularly shares his insights through podcasts and speaking gigs. Rob believes that every human interaction holds the potential to change your life; potential you can start capturing today!
