Do you avoid conversations that involve critical feedback, disagreement, or saying no? Do you ask for less than what you really want? Do you hope to take your leadership or team management to the next level professionally?
When we avoid important conversations to shy away from conflict, we miss opportunities for connection and compassionate problem solving. We also don’t boldly ask for what we want. In a professional environment, courageous communication is an essential leadership tool to become a strong supervisor or advance on a team. In personal relationships, these skills help us manifest the relationships we want and enhance intimacy.
Join mediator and communication educator Diana Adams to hone techniques for empathetic, assertive communication during conflict, including roleplay, active listening, verbal de-escalation, boundary-setting, Non-Violent Communication, and mediation. Throughout the workshop you:
- Uncover internal and external obstacles to communication with an intersectional lens
- Learn to effectively advocate for yourself to improve your professional, as well as personal, relationships
- Plan and rehearse a courageous conversation to have when you return home
All who identify as women and want to enhance communication skills to be more powerful in their personal and professional relationships are welcome.
