Learn how to...

Keep conversations quick and effective!

Have engaging, comfortable conversations that increase patients’ confidence

Help people find motivation by understanding what matters to them

Avoid common conversational traps like “Yes, but…”

Do you suffer from any of these symptoms?

A long conversation doesn’t mean a good conversation, and a short one certainly doesn’t mean an ineffective one. We break down conversation frameworks into 1, 5, and more minute chunks to help you have a positive impact – no matter how much time you have.

It sometimes ain’t what you say, it’s the way that you say it. Active Conversations will help you learn how to build a collaborative and productive conversation by uncovering your patient’s own reason for change.

Learn our top tips for turning a “Yes, but” into a “Yes, and”, encouraging a more positive dialogue which is more likely to succeed.
