Most people have difficulty handling emotionally charged conversations

And this inability to effectively handle high-stakes conversations costs organizations an enormous amount of time and money. Our capacity to manage emotions, resolve conflict, and create meaningful alignment with others is not innate — it must be learned. But we have been rewarded for results, not emotional intelligence, Susan explains in our interview.

So what's the secret to successful relationships? Aligning with others, using emotional composure and resiliency. That's what Susan's program, Meaningful Alignment, is designed to do — help individuals and teams learn how to communicate extraordinarily well and successfully build high levels of trust.
