Often, we handle the situation poorly, and it is impossible to completely avoid the person or people involved.

for handling these difficult exchanges in
a manner that addresses the core issues.

Meaningful Conversations
So much of what we accomplish together
or fail to accomplish together, depends
upon how we talk and how we listen. Conversations create our cultures and relationships. The question, “What can
we do, individually and organizationally,
to bring more meaning to our conversations?” is one that impacts us all and one that we will explore together in this one-day practical and experiential workshop.
