Choosing to Have the Conversation

Your first step in managing a difficult conversation (even if it happens suddenly) is to consider the potential outcomes and decide whether or not the conversation has enough value for you. This session will show participants ways to consider the consequences, as well as how to explore their frame of reference, establish positive intent, and identify what they want from the conversation.

Toolkit for Successful Conversations

Good communication skills are crucial for a successful conversation. This session will give participants tools for managing their body language, speaking persuasively, active listening, asking questions, and using probing techniques.

Choosing the Time and Place

This session will give participants tips on choosing a good meeting place and time for a difficult conversation (if they have that option).

Framework for Difficult Conversations

Next, participants will explore a seven-step framework for difficult conversations. They will also create a template to help them plan future conversations.

Staying Safe

In this session, participants will learn how to handle conversations which might be a threat to their safety.
