How to Have Difficult Conversations @ NH Nonprofit Conference & Expo 5/18/2023
May 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Someone says something to you that is disrespectful of your heritage. You witness behavior that has sexist overtones. You observe a conversation where someone demeans a person because of their racial identity. Besides your legal and organizational policy obligations, you need to have a difficult conversation with the person who caused the affront. But how do you have that conversation in a kind and effective way that has a positive outcome? Combining recent research by cognitive neuroscientists such as Dr. Lara Boyd and Dr. Michael Gazzaniga; conversation experts such as Douglas Stone and Bruce Patton; and discriminatory behavior experts such as Resmaa Menachem, and Iris Bohnet, James McKim will use videos and activities to give you insights into when and how to have these difficult conversations in a productive manner during a session at the upcoming NH Nonprofit Conference & Expo.
