Civil Unrest: How to have tough conversations at work


Sign up for the Course Interest List

Civil unrest: It’s been happening close to home and across the country over the last year. Carrying on as though nothing has happened is not helpful. Leaders and managers need to be tuned in to how employees are impacted by these events and be willing to have real dialogue with their teams. We’ll show you how to have those tough conversations. This training will focus on the use of Restorative Circles to build transformative teams.

You’ll learn about:

  • The State of the State for communities of color
  • How to have authentic dialogue with your employees that communicates concern and support
  • Tools that can be utilized to support your teams
