Program Description:

We’ve all been told, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Yet there are times when we may need to tactfully clue someone in without embarrassment, deflect the negative comments of a well-meaning friend or let someone know that what they’re doing drives us crazy. And we want to do it without destroying the relationship.

If "You Can’t Say Something Nice, What Do You Say?" is a communication book provides practical approaches and actual phrases that can be used immediately to deal with everyday communication drama at work and at home.

You will learn:

  • How to know if you should confront a situation or just let it go
  • Three-step process for conveying concerns with tact and respect
  • How to respond when someone asks your opinion and you have nothing nice to say 
  • Sarita’s Top 10 Positive Communication Phrases
  • Three P’s for staying positive…even when you’re surrounded by negativity

Recommended for 1 CPE in Ethics at the basic level.  
Program is suitable at the basic level for individuals who have routine interactions with others that could potentially lead to contentious conversations.  OK Ethics makes no guarantees as it is up to the individual practitioner to determine relevance to their specific area of practice.
