Description:  How to Have (Better) Hard Conversations

Uncomfortable, high-stakes, or just plain difficult conversations are a fact of life. Sharing negative editorial feedback, giving performance evaluations, or firing someone are all types of discussions we might need to hold as editors. While I can't promise these conversations won't still be hard, you can come to them feeling more confident and prepared with a few tips from the pros. 

This presentation builds on research from Bruce Patton, Douglas Stone, and Sheila Heen; Kim Scott; and Brené Brown to help you discover ways to have better hard discussions.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. What makes difficult conversations so hard
  2. Ways to identify how you address conflict
  3. Tactics for better conversations when the stakes are high

Cost: Free for ACES members/$30 for non-members
