Imagine a world in which you no longer avoid conflict. You appreciate the need for and the benefit of engaging in healthy conflict. You boldly align your words and actions to the desired result without falling into fight or flight mode.

Ashlee D., Leadership Development Strategist

Tackling a topic like Difficult Conversations is challenging enough, but Dr. Melissa Healy managed to take on a 3 part series of instruction and guidance for the Colorado Community College System and affiliated staff with grace and confidence. Dr. Healy was a true professional, providing critical tools for immediate application and offering on-the-spot professional coaching and a space for exploratory discussion from all. Her sessions were highly engaging, and she went above and beyond what was expected by providing additional and continued support to all employees through a private LinkedIn group. She offered bonus coaching and guidance to those who reached out to her. To top it off, she was a great speaker to work with and to bring to our organization.

I am so impressed with Melissa’s investment of time upfront and her level of preparation before the training.
She made a real effort to get to know us before she presented to us.

Melissa presented a three-part seminar on Difficult Conversations for my place of employment. As an avid avoider of awkward conversations and confrontations, Melissa provided tangible tools and strategies to prepare and practice difficult conversations. She encouraged us to put those skills into practice not only in our workplace but with our family and friends as well. This skill set is more valuable than ever in today’s text-based and often ‘outrage’ prone environments. I am so grateful for Melissa’s commitment to this endeavor and am so glad I had the opportunity to learn from Melissa on this complicated topic.
