Knowing how to support someone in struggle can feel overwhelming and complex. How we choose to respond can have a tremendous impact on whether the conversation continues. This recorded session incorporates selected exercises and summarized lessons derived from the workplace workshop ‘Supporting Through Struggle: How to have Supportive Conversations’. We take a deeper dive into how to foster connection and create safety in workplace relationships. We focus on fostering key skills and practices to help you feel equipped to create safety and support in conversation with colleagues, employees, and peers. In addition, we practice strengthening key interpersonal skills that help to support someone emotionally, socially and practically.
