TRU Tips

Having hard conversations strengthens relationships. Ghosting people sends the message that you don’t care.

TOP 3 Reasons Why Tough Conversations Lead To Stronger Relationships
  • Compromise: Difficult professional conversations where parties want different things can often lead to compromise after communication occurs. Demonstrating the ability to compromise is part of any great relationship.
  • Courage: Showing courage to address potential confrontation demonstrates strength in character and conviction.
  • Courtesy: Challenging professional conversations reflect courtesy for others’ time, effort and energy—even if it has been fruitless.
