Are you completely honest with the people in your life? Do you put off having potentially difficult conversations, or avoid them altogether? Is your best resolution to stay quiet, hope for the best, or try and get over it?
You may or may not have noticed, but for many of us, who we are keeps changing depending on who we are with. We’re all kind of chameleons, adjusting ourselves for others: different with our bosses, our direct reports, our moms, even our Lyft driver. We’ll defend why we have to be fake depending on who we’re with. We even blame the other person or gender for it (because they can’t handle, won’t understand, or worse, might judge us)!
Truth is, most of us do not feel safe to tell the truth. There really is a scale of how comfortable you feel in your own skin, to be who you are, say what you think, and most of us are pretty awkward still, even as grown-ups! We’re all busy stereotyping and blaming other people for a lack of connection and intimacy, yet most of us are not doing the work to learn how to speak our minds, gracefully.
Tough conversations take courage, grace, and wisdom. In this webinar, Laurie Gerber, Head Life Coach at Handel Group, will teach you how to identify the conversations you need to have in your life, whether at work or at home, and more importantly, show you how to craft those much-needed talks so that you’ll both listen well and feel heard. Expect to finish this talk feeling like you can handle anything.
Because you can.
In this workshop, you will:
- Meet your current inner-board of (mis)directors. Once you can hear them, you can do something about them.
- Learn how to say anything with the right balance of grace and wisdom.
- Get the tools you need to script, practice, and have any difficult conversation, beautifully.
