Each participant gets to pre-select which breakout session she wants to attend. At these sessions, along with nine other women you will learn more from the expert on the topic.


Delivering difficult messages for most people is often described as stressful and anxiety-provoking. As a result many people avoid having important conversations in order to keep the peace and minimize potential confrontations. The irony is that the longer we leave things unsaid the great the potential for more conflict and misunderstandings.

The majority of the time people do not understand how their behaviour impacts others so unless they are told so they miss the opportunity to make important changes necessary for maintaining healthy relationships.

In this discussion group, we will:

  • Explore the importance of providing direct and timely feedback in order to establish strong boundaries whether it’s with friends, family or co-workers
  • Build trust by creating open and honest channels of communication
  • Use the feedback model to build communication skills and confidence to deliver feedback constructively while minimizing defensiveness.
