Navigating Difficult Conversations Part I: Identifying and Planning the Conversation

This is a past event.

Difficult conversations are bound to occur for all of us. What does it take to identify those challenging situations effectively? What does it take to foster a respectful dialogue, and create an alignment of goals?  

Join this program to evaluate the roots of what makes conversations difficult and how to prepare for a successful outcome.


Key Takeaways:

  • Recognize patterns that lead to difficult conversations 
  • Apply active listening techniques to gain information, increase understanding about the situation and people involved  
  • Identify assumptions we bring into a conversation by exploring the perspective of others
