According to John Green, author of The Fault in our Stars and Turtles All the Way down, “In the best conversations, you don’t even remember what you talked about, only how it felt.”

I agree. When you’re having a conversation at work (or even at home), you’re less likely to remember the content than the impact, unless….

  • Unless you hurt the other person’s feelings, and you don’t address it

  • Unless you’re seen as pushy…or a pushover

  • Unless you talk way more than you listen

  • Unless you’re unaware of your micro-aggressions

  • Unless you’re inflexible in your adapting your style

In other words, your conversations are more likely to be successful when you’re mindful of your intentions, willing to flex your approach, and you’re skillful in evaluating your impact.

I can help you learn to do all of that — and more!

My name is Deborah Grayson Riegel, and I am a keynote speaker, executive coach, and consultant who has taught leadership communication for Wharton Business School, Duke Corporate Education, Columbia Business School’s Women in Leadership Program, and the Beijing International MBA Program at Peking University. I write for Harvard Business Review, Inc., Psychology Today, Forbes, and Fast Company, and have been featured in Bloomberg Businessweek, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.

I am the author of “Go to Help: 31 Ways to Offer, Ask for, and Accept Help” and “Overcoming Overthinking: 36 Ways to Tame Anxiety for Work, School, and Life” and I consult and speaks for clients including Amazon, BlackRock, Google, KraftHeinz, PepsiCo, and The United States Army.

In this course, I will teach you how to improve your results with four types of conversations that all of us need to master to grow ourselves, our relationships with colleagues, managers, and clients, and our careers:

1. Relationship Building Conversations

2. Navigating Conflict and Tricky Conversations

3. Tackling Feedback Conversations

4. When Work Conversations Get Personal

And not only will this course be informative, it will be fast-paced and fun, with lots of practice, concrete takeaways and tools.

I am looking forward to hearing how it’s going for you!

Tackling Feedback Conversations

Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
