During these difficult times, executive directors and organizational leaders seem inundated by the need to have difficult conversations with staff, with landlords, with clients, with suppliers, boards, and community members. No amount of training will make these conversations easier and the tumult and uncertainty of the moment complexifies what, for most of us, we already find to be a daunting conversation.
In this session, participants can expect to:
- Learn a framework for understanding and preparing for challenging conversations
- Acquire tools on how to manage partisan perceptions, strong emotions, and complicated questions of identity and purpose as they come up in difficult conversations
- Manage some of the special complexities posed by the need to have difficult conversations in an age of virtual work and social distancing
On May 22, Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) will host a free Nonprofit Roundtable session with Bob Bordone to discuss navigating difficult conversations.
Robert Bordone is an internationally-recognized expert, author, speaker, and teacher in negotiation, conflict resolution, mediation, and facilitation. Currently a Senior Fellow at Harvard Law School, he served on the full-time faculty at Harvard Law School for more than twenty years as the Thaddeus R. Beal Clinical Professor of Law, Director, and Founder of the Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program before launching his consulting, advisory, speaking, and training practice.
This session is ideal for anyone who finds themselves either avoiding or needing to have difficult conversations with colleagues, co-workers, clients, customers, or family members.
