Making Difficult Conversations Less Difficult

November 19, 2020 - 2:30pm


This program is geared towards doctoral students and postdocs.

Why do we all love to avoid those conversations we know we need to have—knowing the problem will only worsen over time? This session will help participants learn how to  1) successfully lead those difficult conversations most people dread by embracing the need to fully prepare with a sense of deep reflection, gratitude, and humility, 2) identify and apply personal preferences, approaches and tactics to influence success when resolving conflicts that include difficult conversations, and 3) discuss skills and techniques that serve to mitigate or prevent harmful conflict and difficult conversations. It’s time to stop running from our circumstances, and to start leading our outcomes.
