We Need to Talk | 2019 Session

Celeste Headlee

“We need to talk.” These may be some of the most dreaded words ever spoken in an office or over the dinner table. But in our personal and professional lives, civil discourse can be a potent tool to diffuse conflict, find understanding, and feel connected. As a radio host, Celeste Headlee has interviewed thousands of people on all sides of every equation. These years of experience give her a unique perspective on how to have a conversation with people who disagree with you. In this workshop–inspired by her book We Need to Talk and her wildly popular TED Talk–she offers simple tools that anyone can adopt to turn a difficult conversation into a productive one.

Speaker: Celeste Headlee, communication & human nature expert, award-winning journalist & author
