In his book, The Four Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss includes this quote: "a person's success in life can usually be measuredly the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.
But a recent stat points out that "40% of people report that they have put off a conversation for six months or more...hoping the issue disappears.
On today's episode, Tim and Nathan discuss some types of difficult conversations, what stops leaders from having them, and key actions to take when initiating a one. Difficult conversations are part of role of nonprofit leaders and it is important to do them well.
