Let’s Talk About That Conversation You’ve Been Avoiding

You know the one . . . the issue that you can’t stop thinking about. It’s adding stress to your plate and slowing down productivity. But how do you start the conversation in a way that’s actually productive?

When it comes to working with clients, unexpected challenges tend to pop their messy heads up. Whether it's a misalignment about the scope of work, not getting compensated as agreed upon, or establishing clear boundaries, these obstacles are weighing you down and hindering your ability to deliver.

But the fact is - the situation is not going to go away on its own, which means the time to have the conversation is now

In this highly interactive presentation, we will uncover: 

  • What to do before you start the conversation to establish a foundation of thoughtful preparation to set yourself up for success.
  • Strategies for how to open and conduct the conversation in a constructive way to generate buy-in and result in a lasting solution.
  • The 7 Keys to Communicating with Ease, designed to embody a tone of clarity and confidence.
  • How having that difficult conversation can lower your stress level and sustain healthy, authentic, and professional relationships.

This workshop will help you strengthen your communicative confidence and cultivate open and sustainable relationships. You will walk away feeling motivated to release the tension that's impacting you with a pocket full of effective and professional verbiage and phrases to facilitate easy and lasting positive change.

There’s no charge for this workshop.
