Meet up: Core Staff #2:  Getting Started with Difficult Conversations
March 4, 2021, 2:00PM - 3:30PM EST

Meet Up Facilitator:  Elizabeth Miller
Group Leaders: Betsy Mooney, Deepak Budwani, Marsha Plank, Jeff Sherr, Jeanie Vela, and Jonathan Friley

About the Meet Up:   During the first meetup, we asked you what you wanted future meetups to tackle. Well, you spoke and we listened: more than 1/3 of the responses dealt with team dynamics, communication, and emotional intelligence (EQ). Join us as we introduce tools to help you with those awkward, difficult, and important conversations.

We will be utilizing breakout rooms for facilitated discussion and application of the techniques we cover, so you'll want to join with a mic. If your computer doesn't have a mic/webcam, you can join on the computer and then dial in so that you can still participate in the conversation. You can also join via the Zoom app on your mobile device. We'll also be using the chat box and menti.com.
