Leadership Webinar Series looks into ‘Courageous Conversations’

The National Center for State Courts will continue its Navigating Leadership Webinar Series with “Courageous Conversations” on Wednesday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to noon via Zoom.

Courageous conversations are fundamental to effective leadership. As a leader, conversations with one’s team, colleagues, and even supervisor can, at times, be challenging to navigate. It is through the careful navigation of these conversations that one can foster positive relationships and ensure effective communication.

In this webinar, Sara Grondahl, human resources director for the Alaska Court System, will discuss familiar challenges and barriers to effective communication and leave attendees feeling empowered with a toolbox of skills and strategies that will allow them to confidently put courageous conversations into practice.
