What Just Happened?! Navigating Conflict and Confusion in Communication


Wednesday, December 8 at 1pm ET/12pm CST/10am PT
Speakers: Mary Angela Miller MS RDN LD & Heather Dugan

We’ve all felt this way: Puzzled when a client interaction turns awkward or disruptive, or worse yet, seem totally ineffective and wondered why. We’ll present challenging, real scenarios from experienced entrepreneurs then, break them down to “diagnose” what just happened and provide tips on how to handle them in the moment and techniques on how to do better in the future. In the Q&A, attendees can share situations they’ve encountered and discuss options so we can learn from each other.

Learning Objectives:  After this presentation, the attendee will be able to:

  • Describe the common challenges faced establishing client connections and expert advice, tips and techniques on how to overcome them
  • Identify “hidden” barriers to communication, whether they be technological, social, cultural or personal.
  • Build a language library and a repository of responses (including a takeaway checklist) to lead interactions in a productive direction in order to achieve mutual goals

Performance Indicators: 2.1.2 – 2.2.5 – 4.2.5
