Essential workplace conversations are uncomfortable. The thought of bringing up anything less than exciting news to a colleague sends our minds racing into a “what-if” of worse case scenarios. We’re anxious simply thinking about it…. “What are they going to think of me? How can I be candid without seeming aggressive? What do I do when its my manager that needs managing? How do I start the conversation? If I don’t bring it up, it won’t happen again…right? “It happened again….what do I need to do differently now?”…. At a time when work is increasingly collaborative and qualitative, difficult conversations cannot be avoided.

In this class, we’ll couple research-backed conversation strategies with improv-based role-play so that you build the confidence and competence to navigate your next “difficult conversation.”
