    When things go to Funkytown in the workplace due to distrust, "personality" conflicts, lack of alignment or lack of follow-through, it’s difficult to know what to do.  Kris’s down-to-earth, no fuss approach to communicating concerns and frustrations resonates with those who relate to the pit-in-the-stomach feeling when things go sideways. Many of us are accustomed - especially in the workplace - to avoiding conflict at all costs. Some simply feel like it’s not worth the risk. Others just aren’t sure how and others just don’t want to appear “negative.” In this highly interactive and humorous presentation, Kris will empower participants to speak on purpose as well as provide clear insightful steps to move tough conversations forward.

    Top three learning objectives of this presentation:

    1. Framework to Painlessly Tackle the Toughest of Conversations
    2. Learn Communication that Creates Accountability
    3. How to Communicate in a Way that’s Kind, Candid & Constructive
