Becoming an Effective Leader: Part Three: Having Tough Conversations

"Understanding and Love are interdependent. Love is made of Understanding and Understanding is made of Love." — Thich Nhat Hanh

Conflict in life is inevitable. How you deal with it can make or break your success at the office and at home.

Whether it's how much time we spend with our family, holding someone accountable at work, or even telling the waiter our meal wasn't quite to our liking, having the tools to resolve conflicts in a healthy manner will make all of us a little happier don't you think?

What if there was a way for you to have a tough conversation with your spouse, your colleague, your family or friend that left you feeling more connected, more loving, more appreciative and more grateful?

What if this system worked each and every time?

Well you've come to the right place.

During this 60 minute workshop,, you will:

  • understand the nature of a "hard" conversation;

  • identify what stops you from having them;

  • develop strategies to have them go successfully and,

  • make it easier on someone else who is having a difficult conversation with you (even if you don't want to).

About the Series: As part of GlobalWIN’s ongoing effort to bring substantive and helpful career development training to women in government, business, and innovation-driven fields, we have paired with life coach and author Jen Coken to bring you a year-long course to help you achieve your career goals.
