Are you Having the Right Conversation With the Wrong Person?

Are you Having the Right Conversation With the Wrong Person?

May 16, 2019 – 2:00-3:30pm

Ingraham Hall Room 220

Almost all of us are guilty of this: Giving feedback about someone’s performance or behaviors with anyone other than that person. Preparing for a difficult conversation with someone can be extremely helpful. However, unloading about someone to anyone other than that someone is a waste of time. Attend this interactive and enlightening session to learn not only best practices for delivering the right message to the right person, but also how to coach others to do the same. Additionally uncover strategies to receive feedback and react to the message VERSUS the person giving it. Join speaker Shelly Vils Havel as she discusses this important topic.
