    How to Tell Anyone Anything: The Power of Strength-Based Communication

    Do you feel stuck dealing with challenging co-workers, toxic bosses and demanding customers? Join us for an interactive webinar of how to handle your most difficult workplace conversations, using the secrets of strength-based communication – a powerful evidence-based approach to give you more power in dealing with people at your workplace. You will learn:

    • The C.A.N.D.I.D. approach – a six-step process to meet issues head-on without getting people defensive.

    • Asking effective questions that engage the other person.

    • Taking the emotion out of difficult messages.

    • Finding the hidden incentive in any situation.

    • You don’t say: Phrases that never work.

    • Why a fully strength-based approach changes the outcome of any situation.
