Hello, DEAR Kick Conflict to the Curb Weekly Update Readers!
I just thought about the power of this quote on changing fear into action. I use this quote when clients want to improve their communication skills and relationships both at work and home.
Most of us don’t have the skills on how to successfully have that tough conversation. It’s always a risk! Always! There is no guarantee that it will go well.
I always say that it’s worth the risk. Our confidence level improves the more success we have with those difficult people or conversations.
It’s all about changing our mindset. Not easy to do – and so necessary to change fear into action. We all need coaches or a support system to help us when we are stuck. Future blog posts will cover the 5 strategies in my Weiss Communication Success Plan – a significant cornerstone of our virtual course; Kick Conflict to the Curb.

I’ve shared my story about changing my fear of deep water into action by taking snorkeling lessons in a pool – Hey small steps, folks. 🙂 The action is that I took a trip to Bora Bora and you couldn’t get me out of the South Pacific because I loved the experience. If I could overcome this lifelong fear, you can too.
What are some of your fears that you would like to overcome? Those of you who share either in the comment section below or send me an email will receive a new video (that I have not posted yet) about using props to engage your virtual meetings.
