Finding ways to express yourself effectively in tense situations, from negotiations with a potential client to thorny discussions with a colleague, is the key to career success. In this workshop, communications expert Phil M. Jones shares how three key traits—curiosity, empathy, and courage—have the power to transform any encounter into a meaningful conversation and getting what you want.
You'll explore excerpts from three surprising titles that forever changed how Phil approaches complex conversations — and meet a precocious, telekinetic young heroine; a master of asking the right questions; and a leader who takes off their armor, embraces vulnerability, and leads with courage.
