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 session, you will learn about how to lead and remain present in difficult conversations. Through small group and large group discussions, access to research and models, case studies and video, we will learn how to enact a powerful approach to conflict resolution.
