Make Hard Conversations Easier

Woodbury School of Business
Wednesday, Aug 3, 2022 at 12:00 PM (MT) to Wednesday, Aug 3, 2022 at 1:00 PM (MT)

If someone makes a sexist comment do you know how you’re going to respond? What if it is a superior? What if it is on a sales call? What about with a coworker? Oftentimes we are willing to sacrifice our own comfortability for someone else’s. The flip side of that can be a reactive response that leaves us unhappy with how we have handled the situation. Either way, we likely end up in a ruminating session with thoughts of what we would have done differently.
Rather than waiting for the moment of offense to be reactive or silent, I will teach practiced phrases of how to respond when someone crosses a boundary that you don’t want crossed in a professional setting.

Lunch will be served!

Facilitated by Nina Bullock.


About Nina

Karenina Bullock is the VP of Partnerships & Business Development for HTS Builders, a local construction company. Throughout her career, with experience in various companies in male-dominated industries, she has had to use her voice a lot and failed to use her voice. It is the times that she failed that drove her to read nearly a book a week for over a year, attend conferences, participate in personal coaching and group coaching, listen to podcasts, and find any other form of information to consume. Now that she has armed herself with practiced phrases, it is second nature to use her voice and stand in her power. She is ready, wanting, and willing to teach so that other women can also be empowered to have the hard conversations.
