Take it From a Divorce Mediator: Why De-Escalating Charged Communication is the Key to Winning

Celebrating Global Asian and Pacific Islander Identities

Do you ever find yourself replaying an unpleasant work confrontation in your mind and wishing you had said or done something different to “win” the conversation? Does your professional role necessitate contact with antagonistic people who stress you out? You may benefit from learning the Grey Rock method, a communication style designed to de-escalate emotionally charged moments and de-fang the people who verbally bully or undermine others. In this talk, divorce mediator Mari Luangrath-Ullrick will share the specifics of this method, and how it can be used to advance your career, leverage better visibility, gain more credibility, and build trust with others.
