Have you ever avoided a difficult conversation because you were afraid there would be a negative outcome? Have you started a difficult conversation only to have a bad situation get worse?

“Managing Your Difficult Conversations” will provide a model for increasing your capacity to address emotionally and politically risky issues in order to achieve a mutually beneficial outcome. Adriana Kipper-Smith, associate director for clinical services at the University Counseling Center, will be the featured presenter for the online workshop, scheduled for Wednesday, July 29, from 9 to 11 a.m.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify the three keys to successfully managing a difficult conversation
  • Learn how to achieve the outcome they really want
  • Discover how to reach a mutual understanding
  • Practice the “facts, story and ask”

This workshop places an emphasis on learning how to speak and be heard while encouraging others to do the same.
