Are you an open-minded person?

Of course you are! It’s other people who are the problem, right? Sometimes trying to communicate with them is frustrating, drains your energy, and feels nearly impossible.

But guess what? Those people think they are open-minded too, and they probably think you’re the problem.

What if you could turn the desert of miscommunication that exists into an oasis where you can have refreshing conversations, that allow you both to understand where the other is coming from so you can develop empathy, insight and reach mutually beneficial agreements?

In OASIS™ Conversations, Ann Van Eron draws on scientific brain research and her years of coaching experience to teach readers a process to achieving mind-opening connections with others.

Find out why global organizations, Fortune 500 corporations, and even families are benefiting from the OASIS Conversation process. Learn how to minimize misunderstandings and reap amazing results. A better way awaits you in these pages. You will learn how to lead with an open mindset to ensure unparalleled results.

A Peek Inside


Do you live and work in environments with misunderstandings, miscommunication, and mistrust? Are you finding interactions with others challenging and a drain of your energy?

Are you having impactful conversations with colleagues and others that inspire innovative and creative solutions, or do you feel like you’re just overwhelmed by the pace of work and life and the challenges of influencing others?

What will help you be more successful in our fast-changing, diverse global world where the “rules” continue to change?
Sometimes it’s difficult to believe there are any positive answers to these questions and issues.

What Are OASIS Conversations?

An OASIS Conversation is a powerful, five-step, easy-to-grasp process for creating a positive environment and communicating productively with others to produce agreements, solutions, and fulfillment. Each of the “moves” involves an internal awareness and choice of action.

OASIS is also a metaphor. What would be possible if you could create the experience of an oasis in your interactions? What if you could turn the desert of miscommunication that exists between you and others into an oasis where you can meet and have a refreshing conversation—one that allows you each to understand where the other is coming from so you can develop empathy and insight and reach mutually beneficial agreements?
