Taming the “Elephant” in the Room

Abstract:

We’ve all been there; a great idea gets presented and wham, the very questions you thought you had the answers to or hoped that no one would bring up, get asked. The conversation turns into a no-win scenario that leads to endless questions and discussions that go nowhere.  Buy-in is slowed or halted.  The water cooler is where the real meeting now takes place.

Every group has legitimate concerns that cannot be ignored or brushed aside. In this session you will learn and apply a proven strategy to address issues and concerns powerfully and effectively; to harness the elephant of resistance in the room and move your ideas to action.

 After the session, participants will be able to:

Learn a proven methodology for addressing “elephant” issues

  1. Apply straight talk to current situations
  2. Identify the source of the resistance
  3. Learn ways to invite the questioner to be part of the answer and gain buy-in
