We need to have the hard conversation about having hard conversations. Most of us feel unskilled when faced with disagreement and conflict. Ending any relationship can be a complex mix of grief and relief. Regardless of the outcome, most of us struggle with #1: the decision and #2: the conversation. Together we will identify your decision-making criteria and what stands in the way of taking action. Learning these skills can benefit your personal and professional lives. We will outline an approach that allows for dismissal with dignity at work and graceful endings at home. I will be referencing the wise work of Dr. Henry Cloud and his body of work. Don’t let necessary endings get in the way of your new beginnings.
