Making Difficult Conversations, Safe Conversations: Powerful Communication Skills for Women

Presenter: Lorie Reichel-Howe, Founder of Conversations in the Workplace

While research shows that women have an innate ability to communicate and communicate well, their tendency to hesitate, over-think and step back instead of stepping up to address heated and touchy issues limits their ability to influence change and sabotages their career success. When professional women engage in "safe conversations" - transformative dialogue that uncovers hidden workplace issues, they regain their voice, take back their power and increase their influence and career success.

In this webinar, you will:

- Develop leadership communication skills that advance your career to the next level
- Develop strategies for effectively talking, listening and collaborating in situations where opinions differ
- Skillfully address difficult, sensitive and complex issues while building a baseline of trust
- Develop effective communication practices for navigating conflict and getting agreements
- Build more productive, collaborative and positive working relationships
