Quick Bytes: Crucial Conversations

In this session, we will examine how conversations become difficult when the stakes are high, emotions escalate and we fear damage to relationship or other negative consequences. We will explore how to decide whether or not to engage in a difficult conversation, how to look for a beneficial purpose to frame a conversation more helpfully, as well as how to stop falling into the trap of avoiding difficult conversations that really matter.
