One of the keys to success in life and business is building trust. As a business owner, manager or executive, having conversations about difficult topics is an opportunity to build trust, especially when you demonstrate a deep understanding of another person. Many business owners avoid such conversations because they are uncomfortable and results can be intermittent.

Learn the keys to unleash results in your business or team through having difficult conversations. Build on your communication skills through self-awareness and self-reflection. Learn the process that sets you up for success time and time again.

Participants will:

  • Gain insights to better manage your reactions to others
  • Learn how to listen more effectively
  • Use the power of inquiry to establish clarity and understanding
  • Practice ways to establish collaborate results that you can mutually commit to
  • Difficult conversations are the opportunity to build a deeper trust and understanding about one another’s perspectives.
