How to Have Tough Conversations Like a Badass

Ever wonder why having difficult conversations causes soooo much anxiety, often leaving you tongue-tied, frustrated with how you’re getting your point across, and down-right bummed-the-fuck-out? It can be super stressful to approach a sticky topic with someone in your life, especially if you are anticipating a less than enthusiastic response. Believe it or not, there are actually a handful of things you can totally shift in your approach in order to get your message across in a MUCH more effective way. You know, without throwing your husband’s shoes at him.

This episode targets 6 steps you can easily employ to feel much more powerful when you tell your mother-in-law to stop trying to parent your kids. Or whatever other challenging topic you need to address. You’ll learn the most effective way to communicate your needs (and in turn get what you want) without feeling like a big ol’ asshole.

This pod explores:

  • What you need to do BEFORE you have a tough conversation in order to set yourself up for success
  • How to begin a conversation in such a way that the other party is totally willing to hear you out
  • How to get really clear on what you’re asking for or requesting
  • How to own your shit and feel good about what you’re expressing, even if the other person isn’t diggin’ it
