Webinar Description

Do you struggle in difficult conversations? Have you ever let fear and anxiety prevent you from saying what needed to be said? Have you ever felt as though you don’t know what to say?

In this webinar you will learn the powerful Compassionate Curiosity framework. It is designed to guide you through difficult conversations, at work and at home. You’ll know what to say, how to say it, and when to say it in order to maximize persuasion while minimizing the risk of destructive dialogue.

You will learn (learning objectives):

  • How to defuse potentially explosive conflicts before the conversation breaks down.
  • How to use conflict as a tool to increase understanding and strengthen relationships.
  • How to use the fundamental tenets of cognitive behavioral therapy to help you to overcome fear and anxiety.
  • How to consistently put yourself in the best position for success.

The best things in life often lie on the other side of difficult conversations. However, fear and anxiety often overwhelm us and prevent us from standing up for ourselves when it matters most. Learn how to overcome this fear and deal with conflict in this webinar!
