Communicating When the Stakes are High

Do you find yourself stuck, either personally or professionally, not getting the results you want? How do you typically react when a conversation shifts from smooth and easy to tension-filled or uncomfortable? Do you go on the attack? Withdraw into silence? In this session, you’ll learn how to identify when conversations become crucial and discover tools to use to help you get unstuck. Participants will gain insight into their Style Under Stress, and then build skills to help learn to look and stay in dialogue when the stakes are high.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify when a conversation turns crucial
  • Learn how to stay focused on what you really want
  • Learn how to stay in dialogue and speak persuasively, not abrasively
