Preparing for a Difficult Conversation

Jessica Kuchta-Miller, JD, MA
Staff Ombudsperson, Washington University

Preferred registration deadline: February 21st

3 CEUs

Wanting to avoid difficult conversations is normal, but putting them off usually does nothing to resolve the presenting issue or tension. In fact, procrastination can make it harder to resolve the problem you need to discuss.

In this highly interactive workshop, participants will explore what gets in their way of having a difficult conversation and learn how to constructively navigate such conversations. Participants will learn ways of anticipating and dealing with emotions, how to confront tough topics, and how to adjust in the moment to ensure the conversation goes as smoothly as possible.

General Admission: $60**
Class size is limited to 30.
