Kwame also imparts the skills needed to take responsibility and apologize when you’ve made communication mistakes. He provides a framework of negotiation and conflict resolution skills that empowers you to have difficult conversations while avoiding common pitfalls, and helps you structure these conversations in a way that makes it more likely for you to connect in constructive ways.
