Event description

Description

Do you need to have a difficult or uncomfortable conversation with a friend, family member, partner, or co-worker, but you feel unprepared? Does someone you care about want to talk with you about a disagreement you have, and all you want to do is run away and hide?

When we're nervous about the outcome of a conversation, preparation can go a long way. Come to this workshop to create a plan to make the conversation go better than you expect!

In this workshop, you will:

  • Develop a clear idea of what you are hoping to get out of the conversation, and a plan to get there;
  • Explore how ready you are to have the conversation, and determine what you could do to feel more ready;
  • Think about what you know about the motivations and perspectives of you and of the other person;
  • Fine tune the key messages you want to communicate; and
  • Explore your options.

This workshop may be helpful if:

  • You have an upcoming mediation or negotiation in which you know that difficult issues will come up;
  • You have been avoiding someone, and you know the longer you wait the worse it will be;
  • You need to give someone difficult feedback, and you don't think they will take it well;
  • You have been sitting on a long standing grudge or negative feelings, and you want to clear the air.

ACCESSIBILITY: The workshop is held in a wheelchair accessible space, with a gender-neutral washroom. Some sliding scale spots available upon request.
