About the Event

We all hate uncomfortable conversations because …. well, they’re uncomfortable. Our instinct is to avoid them. After all, we’re nice people who don’t want to hurt others’ feelings. But avoiding those difficult conversations can cause bigger problems. Join us for this one-hour webinar to learn strategies to handle challenging conversations effectively.

This webinar is facilitated by:
