Courageous conversations and timeous planning can improve your response-ability in challenging
circumstances.Courageous conversations are about facing and dealing with personal-and relationship
challenges and changes in an honest and straight-forward way.
Require deep communication to improve the well-being of all parties concerned about subjects that are often avoided;
Help us plan, find closure, peace and acceptance; and
Help create a sense of personal agency.
The context for such a conversation can be therapy, mediation, or when one is confronted with life challenges and changes, where honest appraisal of the situation can assist in planning the road ahead.
It is about avoiding, as much as possible, nasty and unplanned surprises along the way that may be very disruptive and unnecessarily stressful. It is also about organising one’s life whilst in a resourceful state, to allow for proper attention to whomever or whatever when a crisis hits.
