Jam Session Registration
This Jam Session is exclusively for members of the Ellevate community.

If you feel stuck — in a relationship, in your career, at home — chances are a conversation you are avoiding is keeping you there. As women, we can have difficulty having our voices heard. Taught to ‘be nice’, it can be extra hard for us to have the conversations that we need to have. 

This Jam Session will help you handle these conversations — conversations that occur when:
  • The stakes are high
  • Emotions run strong
  • Opinions vary

With conversation techniques you will learn, you'll be able to: prepare for these high-stakes situations with proven techniques and transform anger and hurt feelings into powerful dialogue. You will learn how to: make it safe to talk about almost anything, be persuasive not abrasive and improve nearly every professional and personal relationship.
