How to meet unmet needs

We all have different standards. These standards are driven by different worldviews. In conflicted conversations, they boil over into concerns. Learn how to address the concern first to reframe standards and get to a shared worldview that works for everyone. 

How to hear a conversation

There are three ways to have — and hear — a conversation. In the Technical, Social, and Political spheres. Learn which spheres you naturally use and which ones you can strengthen.

How to shift your conversation

Now that you understand how your conversation is heard, identify what kind of conversation you need to have, and learn how to influence using a balance of all three spheres.  

How to have tough conversations

Political is often seen as a “bad” word. It’s why we avoid difficult conversations. However, it’s one of the most impactful ways to have a conversation. Learn how to use the political sphere to influence and build standing.

“How do I navigate conflicted conversations?”


Successful leaders are successful because of the conversations they have. They shift mindsets, move people to action, and are inclusive and balanced. They know that by changing the conversation, they can change minds.

Being on the wrong page, mixed messages, not getting through — what we call a ‘chocolate conversation’ — can seem like an endless, frustrating loop with no end in sight. It’s because we’re having the wrong kind of conversation. Or, we may just be having it poorly. Listening, balancing, and reframing are the ‘hows’ to a conversation that gains traction.

​In the live-online Framing Conversations workshop, learn how to have better conversations that address unmet needs, establish new standards, and shape a new worldview. What you know, who you know, and who knows you are equally important. Unpack the keys to credibility, influence, and standing that drive your conversations.
