Hard Conversations Unpacked

Continuing the learning in the first Having Hard Conversations workshop, Hard Conversations Unpacked is an extension and deepening of the work of becoming more comfortable with the energy of conflict. The workshop revisits the key elements of the book, Having Hard Conversations, such as the outcome mapping and scripting protocol, and goes deeper to provide additional strategies for being more confident and compassionate when faced with situations involving conflict.  For those who didn't take the workshop on Having Hard Conversations, you are absolutely welcome to attend.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Keep conflict at a cognitive level that is more psychologically safe
  • Understand the differences between a problem to be solved and a polarity to be managed
  • Look at a hard conversation through a variety of lenses with the goal to be more other-focused
  • Review a scripting protocol that can be adapted for hard conversations with parents, superiors and colleagues
  • Build up a set of strategies for managing yourself as you engage in this challenging experience
