Identifying the Underlying Need — Meaningful Conversations Workshop 1 of 6

How do you recognize the underlying need for a meaningful conversation? How do you use language that makes you feel safe and lets you be vulnerable at the same time? Is it possible to have a meaningful conversation where you can express the underlying need without becoming a “softy” or “pushover” or “bulldozer”?

The truth is that you can have meaningful conversations, but it requires work. If you can’t figure out why you need to have the conversation, why it matters to you, why it’s important to you — which is often beyond the surface level conversation most of us end up having — you won’t be able to get the results you want.  You’ll have a hard time getting the dialogue right.

When the underlying need is unclear, conversations become stifled and most of us resort to forms of communication we’ve grown up with — debate, silent treatments, manipulation, half-hearted compromises, one-sided resolutions, force, power plays, and so on. We all know, these are unhealthy and don’t serve us in the long run.

This workshop is designed to help you understand your underlying need for the conversation.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to:
  • Understand yourself first and why the conversation matters to you
  • Stay focused on the need versus getting distracted in meaningless conversation
  • Focus your brain to pay attention to your verbal and nonverbal language
  • Return the conversation to language that supports the underlying need
