News & Announcements

  1. LTLTI Streaming Video – Managing Difficult Conversations: How to Say Anything to Anyone

    Presented by Jim Rowell, the event will be held Thursday, June 18, 2015, from 1:30-3:00 pm. There is NO FEE, but pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is June 15, 2015.  Please contact P4A at 717 541-4214 to obtain a registration form.

    Dealing with difficult and challenging people, coping with conflict with others, and addressing individuals who hurt us are some of the most daunting tasks we face on a daily basis. We dread these conversations and are often  unprepared to manage the difficulty involved. This workshop will discuss why they are so challenging because if we better understand the root of the problem, we will be more equipped to learn how to have difficult conversations more effectively and confidently.

    This session will also cover four paradigms of communication to support our mindset being in the right place in order to have effective conversations and not be drawn into a variety of pitfalls that lead to frustration and ultimately failure. It will focus on a simple, yet powerfully challenging, three step process to having difficult conversations. It is designed to help us be courageous when going into a conversation so that we have a greater likelihood of a successful outcome.

    People need practical skills to support themselves in handling these types of struggles and they also need hands-on experience. This presentation is designed to provide the specific skills necessary to develop confidence and proficiency in managing difficult conversations.

    This course describes the basic ethical principles including autonomy (self-determination), beneficence (doing good), non-malfeasance (doing no harm), and justice (fair treatment).
