In the presentation, Beth Wonson will lead attendees through a simple yet highly effective mindset process that she teaches top leaders in nonprofits, government agencies and corporations. This process will help pave the way for you to foster connections and develop the kind of relationships that can lead to donor loyalty and support.

Using elements from her program, Navigating Challenging Dialogue®, Beth will teach you simple steps that you can easily deploy to help you to self-manage the emotions and fears that create invisible roadblocks to human connection.

Beth founded Navigating Challenging Dialogue in 2015 out of frustration for the ways in which traditional leadership skills fail the mission and goals of organizations. Beth realized one of the most critical needs was an awareness of the importance of emotional self-management.

By exploring how our brains work, Beth recognized how emotions and thinking errors impact our ability to create positive work environments. By applying what she learned into her practice with clients, she developed the process of Navigating Challenging Dialogue.

The four-stage NCD Process is for managing yourself and your ability to communicate effectively with curiosity and clarity. The NCD Process is unique in that it is successful in any place where human interaction is critical.
