Limited Capacity seats available

The presentation will demonstrate a framework for engaging in difficult conversations necessary for making decisions, resolving conflict, and creating lasting change. The framework is based on the idea that underlying every difficult conversation are actually five deeper conversations.

Drawing on emerging research from neuroscience, social science, and behavioral science on the relationship between emotions and rational behavior, the presentation will explore five core emotional and social drivers behind “unreasonable conversations”. Understanding these drivers will help participants diagnose the underlying factors behind difficult conversations and develop brain-friendly strategies that overcome resistance and create a climate that fosters collaboration, engagement, and commitment.
