How to handle difficult conversations with kindness and confidence

Most people want to avoid the "elephant in the room." Whether they're with a spouse, a friend, a boss, a coworker, or a child, tough conversations create high anxiety and often lingering resentments. But when you don't have those needed conversations, the results can be even worse. After all, indoor elephants are impossible to ignore--and they get bigger over time.

Communication expert Dr. Mike Bechtle equips you with the skills you need in order to handle conflict with the important people in your life. You'll learn practical and productive ways to listen, to give and receive genuine feedback, and to saturate your relationships with kindness.
