Issue 169 - 05 | Daring Conversations: How to Communicate with Candor, Clarity, Compassion, and EaseBy Alexia Vernon

For the last decade, I’ve supported women to step into their moxie—what I define as possessing the mindset and skillset to be able to walk into any room, or onto any stage, and speak up for yourself and the ideas and issues that matter most to you (and to your company). I have led a range of women’s leadership development programs—independently and on-site at organizations. And while my work has supported women to develop comfort and competency in a range of areas, including interpersonal communication, public speaking, persuasion, sales, facilitation, and coaching, the top area where I’ve seen junior women, emerging female leaders, and even senior women struggle has consistently been in navigating difficult conversations.”
