Topics that will be discussed: 

The best leaders know how to discuss the undiscussables. This session will focus on seven key undiscussables that have a disproportionate impact on whether a firm, a work team, or an individual is judged to be prejudiced. When one of these problems occurs, it is rarely confronted or discussed, and yet each is very likely to lead to judgments about intolerance and bigotry.

If you can identify the undiscussables, then you can bring them into the open, discuss them, and in many cases resolve them. In fact, studies have found that a small minority of people in most organizations are already discussing and resolving them. They speak up when others don’t. They have the crucial conversations, and when they do, relationships and reputations are preserved.

In this workshop we’ll introduce these seven undiscussables, provide tips on mastering crucial conversations required to correct them, introduce a survey you can use to learn whether they are present in your own organization, and illustrate what leaders can do to encourage crucial conversations at an organizational level.
