Janet has created a unique four-step DARE (Diagnose, Acknowledge, Research and Execute) strategy, which blends user-friendly techniques such as behavioural and diagnostic models with neuroscientific studies.
· Step 1 – Diagnose the need: the first step to having a courageous conversation is to understand what needs to move forward and how to address the barriers.
· Step 2 – Acknowledge: by layering several personality models, we can see common habits within a work environment. We focus on the best way to respond.
· Step 3 – Research and Prepare: with a focus on objectives, this step allows the participant to be prepared for potential reactions and outcomes.
· Step 4 – Execute: using role play or/and simulated scenarios, we test different catalysts to begin a courageous conversation.
Janet’s talk was packed with insights and inspiration for all of us. Janet is not only an authentic speaker but also an enabler. She got the crowd instantly on its ‘feet’ without any effort!
