Key Takeaways from Peter Bregman:

If we are willing to feel everything, we can do anything.

“Consider why you are not having hard conversations. It usually has something to do with what you don’t want to feel (anger, disconnection, embarrassment, passive/aggressiveness, etc.).”

Hard conversations mean listening 80% of the time, not talking the whole time.

“Take a moment to think about the questions: What do you long for and how are you getting in the way of achieving that? What might you have to risk in order to pursue it?”
