On today’s show I talk about embracing sweaty-palmed conversations, which is Pillar #3 from my new book, We’re All in This Together: Creating a Team Culture of High Performance, Trust, and Belonging. These are conversations that often involve conflict, feedback, or other things that aren’t easy to address effectively. Even though they can be scary and difficult, when we’re able to talk about important issues openly and authentically, it has an incredibly positive impact on our relationships, our teams, and our overall performance and well-being. We discuss some of the ways we can do this successfully and why this is so important.
