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.
Figure out what's holding you back. What are you afraid of?
Give it a name
Look at the consequences of not having the conversation
Understand the benefits of having the conversation
