In this week's Wine Down Wednesday, you'll hear from Dr. Laura Gallaher, founder of Gallaher Edge, where she applies the science of human behavior to organizations so they can get their edge, achieve together, and enjoy the journey. Laura shares how it is our natural tendency to avoid difficult conversations because we want to keep the world around us harmonious and peaceful, and in order to engage in crucial conversations effectively it’s important to acquire the knowledge and skill on how to do so. Laura dives into why it feels scary to have these conversations and how our brains are wired to keep us safe and maintain the connection to our tribe so that we survive. You'll learn how to be direct with people in your personal and professional life about what matters to you without feeling like you are abrasive or hurting their feelings.
