It’s that time of year: family get-togethers, holiday parties, and navigating client relationships during the busiest time of the year. Join Oren Jay Sofer for this special one-hour Facebook Live Q&A with Simple Habit. Inspired by his new book Say What You Mean, learn how to find your voice, speak your truth and listen deeply.
About Say What You Mean: We spend so much of our lives talking to each other, but how much are we simply running on automatic—relying on old habits and hoping for the best? Are we able to truly hear others and speak our mind in a clear and kind way, without needing to get defensive or go on the attack? The techniques in Say What You Mean will help you to:
- Feel confident in conversations
- Stay focused on what really matters in an interaction
- Listen for the authentic concerns behind what others say
- Reduce anxiety before and during difficult conversations
- Find nourishment in day-to-day interactions
