Candid Conversations That Drive Results

Presented by: Tracy Stock

Tundra Lodge

7:30 AM – 12:00 PM


During the workday, people frequently interact with others who have different abilities and Stepping up and having a difficult conversation is no easy task. It’s uncomfortable, stressful and certainly no fun. But if we choose to not say anything, the issue is likely to not get better and potentially even get worse. This program focuses on how to effectively engage in open, meaningful dialogue which will help us more fully understand one another and achieve enhanced, more productive and positive relationships. Learn to share tough messages in a way that maximizes candor and minimizes defensiveness, using six powerfully effective strategies.


Realize how someone’s perception of intent will influence behavior during the discussion, determine the correct timing and location for it, and effectively begin the conversation in a way that invites dialogue.

Encourage the other person to share his/her thoughts and feelings, acknowledge your understanding of what was communicated, and ask clarifying questions so productive conversations can take place without diluting the message.

Reduce defensiveness when sharing a tough message and recognize natural tendencies when emotions begin to elevate—quickly correcting unintentional poor behavior and getting the discussion back on track.
