Next Step Session 1 – Conquering Crucial Conversations

It is rare to find someone who is comfortable with and skilled at having difficult conversations. Those that master this elusive skill are able to perform when the stakes are highest and can transform precarious situations into opportunities for building stronger relationships and better outcomes. 

In this session, we unpack the neuroscience and psychology of crucial conversations and translate these insights into practical advice for planning and leading the conversations that matter most.

By the end of the session you will:

  • unpack a five step neuroscience model that can help us plan conversations without triggering a defensive response in others
  • learn how to use the 'Three Stories Technique' for beginning a difficult conversation with confidence and sensitivity
  • walk out with extra confidence and commitment to have the conversations that matter most
