    Join Boston Women in Finance on Wednesday, February 8th from 12:00pm- 1:00pm, "Navigating Difficult Conversations with Confidence" with guest speaker Faun Zarge.

    Program Description:

    Navigating Difficult Conversations with Confidence

    Difficult conversations are inevitable in any workplace. Perhaps you need to tell your manager that your project will be late, inform a colleague that they aren’t meeting expectations, or problem-solve with a client who has a history of being defensive. It can be tempting to avoid these conversations, but the issues will rarely disappear on their own. Learning to effectively navigate difficult conversations is a crucial skill that sets you apart as a leader, and results in improved relationships, faster problem solving, and stronger individual and team outcomes. Participants will learn:


    • A multi-step process for preparing for a variety of difficult conversations
    • How to effectively structure and initiate a difficult conversation
    • Techniques for respectfully and productively delivering your message
    • Best practices for responding to defensive behavior and generating solutions collaboratively
