How to Talk About the Hard Things: Advocating for Ourselves, Our Ideas, and Our Causes
We’re living in a time of heated conversations. Within our homes, our communities, our work environments, and beyond, we are striving to authentically express ourselves in the face of mounting challenges. Women must be heard. But to be heard, it’s critical that we learn to have the hard conversations well so that our ideas, messages, and stories can effectively create the change we desire and maintain our loving and connected relationships.
Imagine what it would be like to advocate for yourself or others, and negotiate for what you need if you had a framework to approach difficult topics with confidence and grace. What if we could feel empowered, even when discussing hard topics like politics, identity, power, intersectionality, and the #metoo movement?
Wokie Nwabueze – a leader in coaching, women’s empowerment, activism, and mediation- will help us explore where we falter when having hard conversations. She’ll support us in identifying the true roots of discord and conflict, so we can communicate productively no matter how difficult the topic. She’ll guide us to discern when it’s time to dive in and when it might be best to move on and conserve our energy.
