Managing Difficult Conversations – IN-PERSON
October 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Local Focus: Elected Officials of the State of North Carolina
A Braver Politics Workshop that lowers the stress of difficult conversations w/ constituents across divides & helps you find common ground.
Note: This event is to be attended in person.
Elected officials and staff frequently communicate with constituents and colleagues with different points of view. With communities becoming more politically polarized and public dialogue becoming more confrontational, new skills are required for leaders to better navigate disagreements and encourage a more constructive environment for doing business.
This Braver Politics workshop will equip you with practical tools you can use immediately when a constituent or colleague challenges you on a policy or course of action. As an elected official you will learn skills to help lower the stress of difficult conversations and help you proceed with more confidence in your role. You will come away with strategies to better soften critics and find common ground in an increasingly divisive environment.
