With The Head On Handbook you can put the ideas from Head On: How to Approach Difficult Conversations Directly into action!
Think of holding a conversation. Really holding it. Much like you hold a small child or your pet or even your lover. There is care and compassion and love in that hold. And in conversation, even if it is a co-worker or a client you are holding the conversation with, you can still hold the conversation. Imagine you and the other person holding a space, holding each other, holding the relationship between the two of you tenderly. While the words themselves may not be the most tender words you’ve ever spoken, if you can enter into the space the two of you hold together and treat it as the sacred space that it is, you can, indeed, hold the conversation.
This book is a manual for holding conversations. It is a boots-on-the-ground workbook for you to grapple with the emotional, pragmatic and practical elements of holding a conversation on a difficult topic. As the companion workbook to Head On: How to Approach Difficult Conversations Directly, you will be certainly given tools, techniques and exercises that will do just that. But this workbook is more; so much more.
The Head On Handbook offers:
- Step-by-step techniques for taking action on holding difficult conversations
- Motivation for holding the conversations you’ve been avoiding
- Exercises for mastering the steps of even the most difficult conversations
