Tuesday, August 9th at 4:00 PM Pacific Time


Have you ever avoided an uncomfortable conversation at work? Scenarios like:

  • This project has serious flaws.
  • I’d like a raise.
  • I’m ready for a promotion.
  • Or, maybe your boss simply asking, can we talk?


Using examples from everyday work situations, Roberta Matuson will offer guidance on how to create the right conditions for a meaningful discussion, including seven key principles that enable both parties to gain a deeper understanding of what the other person may be thinking and will help establish their point of view more clearly: confidence, clarity, compassion, curiosity, compromise, credibility, and courage.


Join us for an engaging and interactive webinar on how to successfully start‒and end‒difficult conversations.


This webinar will be recorded and shared with registrants.
