Noon-1:00pm, Online - https://meeting.austin.utexas.edu/careerwebinar/

Executives and business owners dread having difficult conversations that address poor performance, confrontational relationships, stress-inducing, and other negative behaviors. They are a necessary, albeit undesirable part of the job. Understanding how to handle difficult conversations can turn them into opportunities to deepen trust, encourage collaboration, and stimulate learning for all parties involved. RSVP today!

In this interactive presentation, Wendy Nolin will address the myths and misconceptions about having difficult conversations. She will walk you through real-world situations that you encounter frequently: poor performance of a team member, fallout over a manager not being promoted, conflict over strategic company vision, negotiating with investors, etc.

Wendy will teach you specific strategies, including conversation starters to turn conflict into learning conversations between you and external stakeholders, department heads, employees, and even your CEO and clients. Coupled with the verbal and non-verbal presence skills you learned with Monique Maley last month, you’ll learn the neuroscience of communication and how to move from confrontation to collaboration.

This webinar is part two of a three part summer series on the topic of workplace communication. Save the date for part three:

Aug. 16, Career Webinar: "The Elevator Pitch is Dead: Enter the Era of the 30-Second Sales Hook"

Noon-1:00pm, Online - https://meeting.austin.utexas.edu/careerwebinar/
You attend networking events for the most obvious reason, to build and maintain strategic relationships; the kind that will result in more business and lucrative opportunities. But the most difficult aspect of building these valuable relationships is starting the conversation with someone new. Specifically, how to transform your label, “I’m a [insert profession here]” into an engaging conversation with someone who could benefit from your specific product or service, they just don’t know it yet.

In this interactive presentation, Wendy Nolin is going to teach you how to transform your tired, worn out elevator pitch into a compelling conversation starter that will have your listener asking for more. You’ll learn the art of weaving a story that draws the listener in so they can see themselves in your story, and they’ll want the solution you offer. RSVP today!


With four different techniques to create your 30-second sales hook, you’ll be armed with multiple ways to go from using your title or profession as an introduction, to hooking a future prospect. Integrate the non-verbal skills you learned with Monique Maley in June and you’ll leave this presentation with a commanding presence and compelling conversation starter that will make you unforgettable.
