Lunch and Learn: Mastering the Art of Influencing Difficult Conversations

Thursday, November 30th, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM EST 

Burnt out on watching webinars from your desk? Come have lunch with your industry colleagues while we watch a live LMA webinar together, “Mastering the Art of Influencing Difficult Conversations.” Bring your appetite for both knowledge and lunch - we've got you covered!

Bring a buddy! As we wrap up this year and look forward to next year, we encourage you to bring a colleague who is not an LMA member yet or has let their membership lapse. The more the merrier!

The webinar will equip you with strategies to engage in productive conversations, deepen relationships, and reduce stress. You'll learn to: 

  • Recognize where and why you're avoiding difficult conversations.
  • Prepare for effective, behavior-changing conversations.
  • Practice and apply strategies to improve relationships with colleagues and clients.

Webinar Overview
Difficult conversations tend to be avoided because professionals shy away from the uncomfortable, and fear polarizing relationships. But avoidance is not a recommended road to success. Participants will learn strategies and tactics to engage in productive conversations to address challenges and deepen relationships. They will understand where and why they avoid difficult conversations. And they will leave with an understanding of how they can engage in productive and effective conversations to make their professional – and personal – lives more joyful and decrease stress.
