Whether you have problems delivering bad news, get heartburn when thinking about counseling a colleague, let clients run over you just for standing your ground, have trouble objecting to workload imbalances, avoid presenting options in the midst of chaos, or simply would rather go with the flow over standing up for what’s right, all are signs of needing to embrace the art of fierce conversations. It is understandable that you would rather avoid these talks as we are not hard-wired to know how to successfully navigate controversy. We are hard-wired for fight, flight or freeze. During this training you will learn that difficult subject matter can emotionally charge any room and knowing the art of managing these conversations can take a destructive conversation to a constructive exchange of thought. This seminar is crafted to assist you in approaching difficult conversations with confidence. You will learn how to skillfully manage expectations, keep explosive emotional swings in check, and keep the organizations best interests front and center.
