Having Difficult Conversations


Having Difficult Conversations

Every one of us has a conversation we are dreading. We ignore it. We put it off.  We keep wishing and hoping that the issue will go away or magically resolve itself.  Often, all that time does in these situations is make the issue appear bigger and even harder to work through.

What if you could build your courage to have the conversations you need to have?  What would be different?   Well, your internal worry would lighter or non-existent.  And quite possibly the relationships in your life would be better too.

In this one hour session, participants will be introduced to a simple conversation framework that helps us tackle the conversations we keep putting off.   At the end of the session, participants will leave knowing some steps they can take to say ‘what needs to be said’ in an effective and supportive way.
