Managing Difficult Conversation
Those tough conversations will still be tough, you just can be more successful at them.

Coming Soon!

This virtual workshop addresses the key knowledge and skill areas for tackling one of the toughest aspects of life, very uncomfortable conversations. The session is informative, highly interactive, and a safe place to practice.

Our approach to challenging conversations is threefold:

  1. To explore why these conversations are so difficult and uncover their underlying patterns

  2. To provide a new structure to “see” these conversations, including strategies that help you express what needs to be expressed in the moment, not hours later in an email.

  3. To practice. These ideas are proven, yet without practice knowledge cannot become skill.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain knowledge and skill to see patterns in difficult conversations

  • Be able to see, understand and apply a unique model for thinking through and being more successful at challenging conversations

  • Most importantly, talk through, challenge and apply the tools and methods in a safe place.
