How to Tell Anyone Anything: The Power of Strength-Based Communication

Do you feel stuck dealing with challenging co-workers, toxic bosses and demanding customers? Join us for an interactive webinar of how to handle your most difficult workplace conversations, using the secrets of strength-based communication – a powerful evidence-based approach to give you more power in dealing with people at your workplace. You will learn:

• Why typical “deficit-based” feedback doesn’t work.

• The C.A.N.D.I.D. approach – a six-step process to meet issues head-on without getting people defensive.

• The first 30 seconds: Creating a neutral opening that gets you in dialogue.

• Asking effective questions that engage the other person.

• Taking the emotion out of difficult messages.

• Finding the hidden incentive in any situation.

• You don’t say: Phrases that never work.

• Why a fully strength-based approach changes the outcome of any situation.

Rich Gallagher, LMFT is a former customer service executive and practicing psychotherapist who heads The Point of Contact Group in Ithaca, NY. His nine books include two national #1 customer service bestsellers, and he has trained over 30,000 people how to handle their most difficult conversations.
