Dealing With Difficult Conversations: Communication, Conflict and Other Snafus 
Tuesday, June 15, 1:30 2:30 PM (Eastern)

We each speak our own language based on our background, history, mood, training, and what we had for breakfast. Just because you’ve been communicating since you left the womb doesn’t mean you handle conflict, confusion, and misunderstandings well. 

In this webinar, Karen Susman of Karen Susman and Associates shares the tools to be a more effective communicator in tough situations, both personal and professional.

Participants will learn:

  • Seven keys to effective communication
  • Five ways to handle conflict and how to choose which way to use when
  • How to get into a discovery mode instead of a blaming mode
