Difficult conversations with family members

They are without doubt some of the most difficult conversations we will ever face. Raising a really sensitive issue with a family member has massive stakes attached. Unlike other friendships familiy ties are in the most part there for life and incredibly interconnected with other family members. Fall out with your brother and you now create awkward and political challenges for your parents, sisters, uncles and aunts etc around all sorts of future family gatherings, not to mention whose side they should take.

A couple of months ago The Independent asked if they could write an article about how I could help one of their Journalists with a difficult conversation they needed to have with a family member.

I’d be delighted to hear your comments on what you thought about the article which you can find here:

Can a conflict coach from the world of industry teach us how to manage the difficult conversations in our family lives?
