"Difficult Conversations"

Only $395

Many of us find ourselves in situations where we need to have a difficult conversation with someone; and rather than have the conversation, we avoid it. This session is designed to provide you with strategies for holding productive conversations that can result in desirable outcomes. You will leave the workshop with an action plan to use specific tools and techniques to handle difficult conversations successfully. Earn 6 PDUs.

Difficult Conversations is a six-hour program to hone your skills.  You will learn more about:

  • What are difficult conversations?
  • What makes them so difficult?
  • The dynamics of difficult conversations
  • The stake model
  • What’s required for difficult conversations?
  • Keys to effective difficult conversations
  • Planning for a real, difficult conversation

Difficult Conversations will be held on Friday, February 17, 2012, from 9:00am - 3:30pm at Brandman University 16355 Laguna Canyon Road, Room 120, Irvine, CA 92618.
