We can all agree that we want to work on teams where we feel safe, do work that matters, and make a positive impact. Yet sometimes teams are stifled by known problems that no one wants to acknowledge, impacting everyone's success. Congratulations, we have an elephant in the room! Together, we will explore how you can empower your team members to address the true elephant in the room: avoidance of what created it in the first place.

Guided by more than a decade of research and professional practice, Sarah will show you how to apply her Curiosity First approach to conflict and avoidance. She will share strategies to help you and your team increase ownership, practice conversations that are candid and compassionate, and build deeper levels of trust that result in more powerful partnerships.
