So What If You Don't Have That Courageous Conversation?

Continuing our short series about Courageous Conversations, I asked Vistage speaker Janet Tarasofsky how I should prepare myself, to get in the right frame of mind.

  • Give it a name

  • Look at the consequences of not having the conversation

  • Understand the benefits of having the conversation

Once we've got clear on what we're afraid of - and realised that, while we're a little afraid we're not in danger - the benefits and consequences of not having the conversation are always going to outweigh the status quo. We just have to be bold.
