ABOUT THE WEBINAR: "Breaking the Ice of Nice™" - Understanding and Practicing Courageous Conversations

Presented by: Laurie Hall, MSc, PCC of New Horizon Strategies, LLC.

Many leaders tell us their organizations are pretty good, but a little too nice. When we avoid having tough conversations because we don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, are we effectively communicating? The answer is no! Dr. Brené Brown’s research around Daring Leaders shows the number one barrier to braver leaders is the lack of courage to have tough conversations.

What would happen if leaders replaced being nice with being more courageous? What impact could this have with teams, with organizations, and with customers?

This webinar will help process the fears and feelings associated with saying what needs to be said and understanding the potential positive outcomes of the sharing of our unique perspectives.

Join us for "Breaking the Ice of Nice™" with Laurie Hall, MSc, PCC of New Horizon Strategies, LLC. As a "Dare to Lead™" certified facilitator, Laurie bases this webinar on Dr. Brené Brown's recent best-selling book of the same title. This webinar is designed to help coaches explore how to hone communication effectiveness by determining their unique Call to Courage. You’ll gain a better understanding of the fears and needs linked to giving and receiving feedback – and a specific tool to use going forward. Are you ready to Break the Ice of Nice?

Topics Covered:

• Call to Courage
• Daring Leadership™
• Vulnerability
• Resilient Organizations
• Team Effectiveness
• Communication and Feedback
• Dare to Lead™

Learning Outcomes:

• Understand why Courageous Conversations matter to you.
• Determine when you’re acting courageously and what might be getting in the way when you’re not.
• Learn a new tool to simplify and create confidence around the process for giving courageous feedback.
