How to succeed in high stakes conversations

This talk isn't about "talkin' proper", it's about building your intuitions to talk more skillfully to get the job done.

Just about everything you need to get done at work involves talking skillfully. Whether you are selling a service, resolving conflict, managing high expectations, influencing stakeholders or negotiation a position, talking is the central tool.

This workshop shares top tips and tools to succeed in high stakes conversations and the language skill of top performers.
