Criticism = attack or gift? You decide.
LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES
On the receiving end: Sometimes, criticism and advice are welcome and helpful - you take to heart what someone has to say, and you grow as a result. At other times, your critic or advice-giver means well but is not helping - you don't need or want their input, you didn't ask for it, but here it is, and now what? And sometimes you're too hurt, or too busy defending yourself, to see whether there might be a gift hidden behind the attack.
On the giving end: Providing negative feedback - even when it's true - can feel awful. You probably don't want to hurt anyone's feelings - at least not if you can help it. So, you try to soften the blow, or you rush just to get this over with quickly, and you stop short of saying what the other person really needs to hear. Or maybe the way you give clear and direct feedback hurts your relationships, and you don't know why that happens or how to change that.
And then there's that pesky voice inside your head: This one may be your loudest and meanest critic yet. And your most "effective" one, because it knows where to hit and really hurt you. And it's always with you and won't shut up. Maybe you don't need anyone else's feedback, because you've already said far worse things to yourself ...
Now the good news: It doesn't have to be this way.

What participants have said about previous workshops (names omitted to maintain participants' privacy):
I was reminded how many avenues there are without being an aggressive bully, a scorned cynic, or a passive pushover.
Your training was gentle, but super empowering. It made me feel like I can handle this, and the things you suggest are doable.
Five stars! All of the content was understandable and related and very relevant. I feel like I got a lot out of it.
Hello! I'm Lisa Fisher, and I don't like conflict.
As a former corporate attorney and mediator, I have been helping people have tough conversations at work and at home for over 30 years. I teach my clients how to stay calm and focused under stress, defuse tense situations, speak up with confidence, and disagree respectfully.

I am a certified embodiment coach and Yoga teacher (Yin, Vinyasa, Embodied Toolkit), martial artist (Black Belt in Kenpo Karate), Embodied Meditation teacher, practicing Buddhist, and ballroom dancer.
