Real Talk/Real Food: Engaging in Difficult Conversations

Young businesswoman discussing with businessman at office.Do you avoid having difficult conversations, or freeze up when you do? Have you looked back in regret about what you said or did not say during tough talks with your colleagues? Perhaps you’d like to have more effective tough talks, but just don’t feel comfortable or confident engaging.

Real Talk/Real Food provides participants the opportunity for frank discussion in an intimate, safe setting about a predetermined topic that can profoundly affect personal and career aspirations. During this June’s discussion over dinner, we’ll dig into the topic of Difficult Conversations. It seems that some women are reluctant to engage in such conversations, while others who DO engage tend to do it badly. We’ll investigate the social psychology and biochemistry involved when having these tough talks, and co-create methods to prime others before such discussions, turning negative news into future opportunities.

Want in on this energetic discussion? It will take place over a healthful meal, home-cooked by DRIVEN founder Deborah Goldstein and paired with hand-chosen wines. You’ll leave this exclusive Real Talk/Real Food event physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally nourished, complete with a new outlook on the health and career benefits of engaging effectively in difficult conversations!
