How do you manage emotions when they run high? Have you ever heard, you shouldn’t discuss race, religion, or politics? Well, what do you do when these conversations organically emerge? Do you welcome and embrace them? Or do you run and hide? Dr. Jermaine Davis defines Courageous Conversations as, “Honest, open, and transparent dialogues that need to happen to move relationships, teams, and organizations forward.” Those who live, lead, and work with an inclusive lens—create brave and safe spaces for Courageous Conversations.

We cannot escape conflicts and disagreements in our personal and professional lives. Are offensive comments, inappropriate behaviors, and disrespect interfering with your ability to communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with others? When toxic behaviors persist, go unacknowledged, and unmanaged in life and worktrust, morale, motivation, and momentum quickly erodes. However, we can learn to deal with them more effectively by learning how to engage in courageous conversations and lean into difficult dialogues with competence, confidence, and diplomacy.

As a masterful storyteller and facilitator, Dr. Jermaine will share principles and practices on how to facilitate healthy Courageous Conversations. He will draw from his books, Leading with Greatness! and Leading and Working with an Inclusive Lens. If you want to take your communication and dialogue skills to the next levelthen don’t miss this presentation. Get ready to laugh, learn, and of course engage in professional fun.

We look forward to seeing you online for this insightful presentation.
