When you sense conflict, do you address it or avoid it? Have you ever had a conversation go terribly wrong and wonder “What just happened?” You are not alone! In this interactive session, we’ll explore what makes some conversations difficult and discuss strategies to reduce anxiety and engage with greater confidence. Content builds upon the January 27th Negotiation Strategy session (attendance is encouraged, but not required). A pizza lunch will be provided.
