Courageous Conversations

Course Overview

Being able to deal with difficult conversations effectively is an essential business skill that is invaluable in maintaining good relationships. 

Disagreements don't disappear when they're ignored. People are often concerned about having a difficult conversation because they're worried the other person might react defensively to what they've got to say.
