"For me, the biggest challenge is that much of the content presumes we live in a post-racial, more equitable society. I appreciated Stephani making the effort to update the content through her examples. I feel less intimidated to put myself into a situation where I might encounter higher emotions, and I feel that I may have additional strategies, now, that may help to prevent some public emotion in the first place. I'd like to keep learning and practicing this more. Thank you for the great course, Stephani! I really enjoyed it."

Convene: Holding Space for Brave, Honest Conversations

A three-day experience about how to design and hold space for brave, honest conversations about challenging issues.

Giving and Receiving Feedback to Grow People, Performance and Relationships

A one-day workshop designed to build skills, comfort and confidence to talk about important issues in your organization.

People are not born knowing how to talk about tough stuff, and too often feedback is given in ways that damage performance and confidence and weaken team effectiveness. We need a way of working in teams that create space for courage, connection and compassion.

" I enjoyed this workshop so much Steph. You create a safe experience for participants to explore what brave means to them, articulate their strengths."

"Stephani was a fantastic instructor. She really held the room and shared personal stories about outrage and overcoming obstacles in her career. For someone who struggles with self-care and coping with engagement "outrage" I really appreciated and enjoyed her openness to discuss those issues and how they can be overcome. "
