The Why of Challenging Conversations
August 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDTFree
Uncovering how our own cultures, experiences, and biases affect what we consider challenging is a critical step toward effectively navigating challenging conversations. Come explore what impacts what we see as challenging and why.
This workshop is part of the larger Navigating Challenging Conversations: What, Why, and How series. Challenging conversations are an inevitable part of building trusting relationships with families, colleagues, and partners. While these conversations can be uncomfortable, they are also opportunities for self-reflection and growth. In this workshop series, we explore how racism, culture, and bias may affect when and how we experience conversations as challenging. We practice applying a strengths-based approach to effectively engage in challenging conversations.
