Do you find yourself avoiding difficult conversations? Or have you accepted that you avoid conflict? God desires for us to be at peace with one another. Being at peace doesn’t mean avoiding. Often when we avoid, it’s because of fear. In this episode, you will learn what hard conversations are, why we avoid them, what happens when we do avoid, and how to step into being courageous instead. Some hard conversations are giving honest productive feedback, having hard meetings and emotionally charged decision making. We can often avoid because we are afraid of others’ responses, don’t want to be vulnerable, we are afraid of looking bad or we just don’t have time to take on the emotional issues in the moment. When we avoid difficult conversations, our functioning can be impaired, trust can decrease, toxic culture can be created and there can be broken friendships and families. Come and be transformed in this episode with increased courage to not avoid hard conversations.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. ~Romans 12:18 (NIV)
