Courageous Conversations: Staying Connected When We’d Rather Disengage

February 28, 2017

There comes a time in every relationship when things don’t go smoothly; when the going gets tough and what used to work, no longer does.

Challenging situations happen at work with the boss and with our co-workers. Difficulties rise up at home with our children, spouse and with our aging parents.

It’s in those tough moments, when we don’t see eye to eye, that we are called to courageously speak what’s on our mind and share what’s in our heart.

But so often, we don’t.

In this presentation Lisa will share The 3 Steps to Prepare for a Courageous Conversation. And she will walk us through The 5 Steps to take in Your Courageous Conversation.

Participants will leave this workshop inspired and prepared to have conversations that will move their relationships forward, even when things feel stuck.

Lisa Bobyak, ‚ÄčLiving Fully Balanced LLC, and creator of The Complete Living Fully Balanced Program, helps high achievers balance their lives and create space for what matters most. Because she’s overcome unexpected challenges herself, and thrived in spite of them, Lisa is compelled to help others do the same.  The Living Fully Balanced approach is simple, yet the results are profound. Her clients increase their energy, decrease their stress and create balance… by their own definition. Lisa’s graduate of The Pennsylvania State Univsersity, trained through CTI and is undergoing her certification through ICF.
