Description
Every day, we see them! Those awkward, uncomfortable and emotionally charged situations we’re just not sure how to address. You know, the “Elephant in the Room”… Maybe it’s a difficult personality you have no choice but to work with – although you’d rather not. Perhaps it’s the fact that no one respects your opinion – even though you know you’re right! It could even be unfair circumstances that have left you holding the “short end of the stick”. Often times, it’s the issue that isn’t discussed that creates the vacuum of silence. It fills the space with its presence, yet not one word is said about it.

Unclear of a course of action, we’re tempted to simply ignore them, hoping they’ll go away. Problem is, of course, that these issues do just the opposite of what you’d like. They grow, propagate and start breeding new problems. Even if the problem wasn’t yours to begin with, it quickly becomes your problem or a team problem.

There’s good news! These “Elephants” can be overcome – successfully and permanently. What’s more, they can empower you to achieve results you’ve never thought were possible.

Join Nancy Whatley-Blaine for Dismantling the Elephant. An interactive and results-driven discussion on how to identify, address, and eliminate these “taboo topics” we try so hard to ignore, avoid and sweep under the rug.

We will show you how to push your personal and organizational performance to the highest level. More importantly, we teach you how to eliminate the barriers that stand in the way between you and success.

Human Resource Professional, Managers, Team Leaders, and those seeking to improve their professional effectiveness.
