We can all feel when a difficult conversation is brewing. Whether it is a personal conversation or a professional one, our lives are improved, our relationships strengthened, and our careers steadied when we have the skills and the courage to initiate and navigate difficult conversations. In this follow-up session to Part 1, held on April 2, you will learn about how to lead and remain present in difficult conversations. In this session, we will focus on using “I statements” and we will practice difficult conversations in small groups. In this session, we will hone our ability to engage in difficult conversations with courage, honesty, and compassion. While it is useful to have attended Part 1, all students are welcome to join us.
