Title: Keeping Your Cool when Things Get Hot: Communicating with Confidence Under Pressure Trainer: Debra Howard, Debra Howard Consulting

Most of us are good communicators when we’re talking with people we trust about topics that are straightforward. But when we need to talk with someone about something complex, frustrating, or disappointing, many of us don’t feel confident about having a difficult conversation without creating resentment, conflict, hurt feelings, or some other negative outcome.

Join executive coach Debra Howard in a two-part communication intensive to improve your mastery and confidence with the challenging conversations that are keeping you awake at night. You’ll be introduced to her Mutual Influencing communication model, discover what your default communication preferences are, participate in discussions with your colleagues about best practices, and practice what you’re learning in lively, small-group exercises.

The first 90-minute session is, “Advanced Advocacy Skills: Getting Your Point Across with Clarity and Compassion.” The second 90-minute session is, “Advanced Inquiry Skills: Reducing Defensiveness and Increasing Receptivity.”

There will be a short break in between the two sessions. Participants will receive pre- reading and a session workbook.

The presentation is appropriate for professionals at all levels.
