Safe Conversations:

Dialogue that Transforms Workplace Culture​

Oftentimes, when you feel "stuck" in a work situation or relationship, what's typically keeping you "stuck" is a difficult conversation you are not holding or not holding well.

How do you...?

• Foster greater innovation, inclusion and collaboration 

Train employees to safely dialogue about workplace issues

• Develop strategies for effective talking and listening 

***********************************************************************

​Come learn the following skills through simulation and ​practice as you are coached through typical situations faced everyday at work:

    • Reframe accusations by inviting understanding
    • Disentangle impact and actions
    • Transform blame into identifying contributions
    • Apply contrasting skills to bring clarity
    • Establish mutual purpose leading to a shared partnership
    • Transform hurtful words into healthy dialogue
