Questions? Here are some answsers!

Is this workshop actually live?

Yes, I will be teaching this live on Thursday, March 16 at 11:30 AM CDT! There will be a recording available, but you’ll want to be there live for Q&A and a live bonus!

I'm not sure this is really for me, can you explain who this workshop is for?

This workshop is for anyone who initiates hard conversations and wants to maintain relationships by preventing unintentional harm.

If you don’t care about how your words impact others, then this workshop is not for you.

I have hard conversations all the time, will I get anything out of this?

Even if you have hard conversations all of the time, there are still things we can learn about how to manage relationships, build our emotional capacity, and increase productive outcomes. We would love to have you join us to learn more!

What happens if I can't make it live?

If you can’t make it live, a recording will be sent out after the workshop. You’ll also have the opportunity to reach out to me with any questions by email for up to 1 week after the workshop so watch the replay as soon as you can!

Will there be a chance to ask questions during the workshop?

Yes! We will have a Q&A at the end to talk about best practices around hard conversations. We’ll try to avoid giving specific advice about what you should say to Sally tomorrow, but we’ll equip you with tools to make the right decisions about your next hard conversation.

Is this really free??

Yes! 100% free workshop about improving your hard conversations and preventing unintentional harm! I’m so excited to offer this to you all and help build your communication toolkit.

A Note from Sami…

I am so excited to help you improve your capacity around hard conversations. For me, being able to speak up, say what is on my mind, and contribute productively to every group that I am a part of is integral to my success and satisfaction.

Living without fear holding me back from talking to others about anything has given me the freedom to be who I really am, no matter if I’m at work, hanging out with my in-laws, or in a new mom’s group.

With years of experience teaching communication workshops and leadership development, I’m excited to be able to offer virtual workshops and courses to help you achieve the growth that you are searching for.

Communication is like a muscle to work out. The more you stretch, exercise, and intentionally develop it, the more it will grow. Working with a personal trainer or attending a group class can help you build muscle faster and with more confidence, knowing you are less likely to cause an injury with someone guiding you.

But building your skills at having hard conversations does require effort on your part. It’s not an easy hack or quick fix, but requires a willingness to grow. You don’t need to know how, you just have to be willing to learn and jump in.

So, decide to improve your communication now! I’m cheering you on and can’t wait for you to step out on this journey!

All my best,
