Addressing Issues with Constructive Results

Part of the Communication Strategy of Success Program

Virtual Delivery

February 2 and February 9, 2021

Introduction and Background

Have you ever avoided a conversation about an important topic, wished you could be more assertive, had difficulty giving or receiving feedback or been frustrated by the outcome of a conversation?  And when it is important, are you able to say what is on your mind, to anyone, at any time in a respectful, constructive manner?

During this program, we will interactively explore the dynamics of people and conversations that will enhance our communication successes and relationships. We will incorporate a wide variety of perspectives, activities and discussions to be able to achieve constructive results and shift our thinking from difficult conversations to mighty conversations.

Mighty Conversations: Addressing Issues with Constructive Results is part of the Communication Strategy for Success Certificate Program. For more information on completing the certificate, click here.

Develop Skills in Situation Analysis

By ‘mastering the courage to interrogate reality,’ (Scott) we learn to check the externals - fact vs assumption, position vs need and fruit vs root issues.

Since ‘what I do speaks so loud you cannot hear what I say,’ (Emerson) we learn to check accessories – preference, habit, bias and identity.
