Opening General Session

If You Can’t Say Something Nice, What DO You Say?

Thursday, Nov. 21 at 8 a.m.

We’ve all been told, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” However, navigating difficult conversations without damaging relationships can be incredibly challenging. When it comes to conflicts, challenges, and difficult conversations, you can run, but you can’t hide. In her lively keynote, communication expert Sarita Maybin will offer practical strategies and positive techniques to navigate tough conversations at the board table with tact and respect. By the end of the session, you'll feel empowered to approach difficult conversations with grace, focused on maintaining professionalism and fostering better understanding in ALL communications.

Sarita blends real stories and practical solutions to equip individuals with the tools they need to convey challenging news while preserving positive AND constructive relationships. Attendees will gain the confidence and skills necessary to evaluate whether a situation requires confrontation or can be overlooked. Through Sarita’s guidance, participants will be introduced to a three-step process for expressing concerns in a respectful and effective manner. Additionally, Sarita will share valuable methods to cushion the impact of negative feedback or bad news, helping your team facilitate conversations while remaining as positive as possible. Kick off the 79th IASB Annual Convention by learning to transform uncomfortable conversations into constructive communication! You’ll leave with new tools to assess when it’s time to confront challenges head-on to help your board team build and maintain positive, constructive at the board table, and with your community.
