Have you ever said something to someone that unintentionally upset, or even offended, them? Even with the best intentions, our words sometimes have unintended impacts on colleagues, teams, and even stakeholders. So, how do you recover from the disconnection and deliver value after that happens? This session provides one solution to that problem: Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ®). C-IQ is a neuroscience framework for recovering from unintentional impacts and building trust in communication. During a conversation, there’s a neurochemical cocktail that’s influencing all parties involved. These influences are unconscious; however, we can learn to recognize the signs of neurochemical impacts. That knowledge is key to building relationships with intention and having effective conversations around challenging topics. This session introduces easy-to-use tools for engaging in effective, connected conversation with clients, peers, and team members. By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Navigate difficult and crucial conversations using neuroscience
  • Learn three levels of conversation and how to use them for specific outcomes
  • Overcome blind spots that negatively impact trust
  • Apply neuroscience to restore positive relationships following a disconnection
