It's Time for Brave Conversations

If ever there was a time for brave conversations, it is now. With all that’s happening in this country and the world, we can’t afford to shirk our responsibility for having brave conversations. At the same time, brave conversations take courage. We don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. Nobody likes to be the bearer of bad news. We don’t always know what we need to say. And frankly, they didn’t teach us how to have brave conversations in school. Luckily, the basics of brave conversations are all learnable skills.
