177: How To Have Brave Conversations During Holidays

by neeta bhushan


Quote: “Having brave conversations is hard, even if you are the one that is bold and brave for even thinking about wanting to clear it.”

In this episode, we serve up a dose of realness on the Brave Table — getting down and dirty on why we’re all scared of those brave convos and spilling the real tea on how embracing the discomfort can turn you into a fierce, conversation-slaying diva. Stemming from insights, personal experiences, and societal trends, we discuss the importance of facing uncomfortable truths and challenge the avoidance mechanisms prevalent in today’s communication landscape. It’s time to slay those convos and own the stage of your relationships.
