With business owner, entrepreneur and mentor Elisabeth Cardiello 

What is The Art and Science of Effective Conversation: Brave Conversations over Coffee?

How can you make difficult conversations productive? How can you use conversation to strengthen relationships, deepen trust and manage the stress levels of your team? And how do you do all of this remotely? 

Effective communication has never been so essential…how do we use it to take better care of ourselves and those around us?

Inspired by nearly a decade of owning a coffee company and bringing people together around this familiar morning ritual, Elisabeth has deconstructed conversation and built a communication framework rooted in the neuroscience of trust. Combining tools from hostage negotiation to positive psychology, Elisabeth explains and explores the ways in which we can use conversation to empower those around us. As the co-founder and CEO of Legacy Out Loud, Elisabeth uses these skills to enhance the confidence of the next generation of female entrepreneurs. 

In this class you will:

  • Learn how to use Elisabeth’s simple framework to turn hard conversations into productive ones
  • Manage your own stress response, as well as that of others when conveying difficult information
  • Transform your listening skills to foster stronger relationships

This class is run by Elisabeth Cardiello. If you’ve seen the Netflix documentary, “Coffee For All,” you may already know Elisabeth. This coffee-loving, Brooklyn-native had her first business cards at six and first product on shelves at 13. After college, business school, and a stint on Wall Street, she dealt with loss, found herself and her passion by starting a coffee company called Caffè Unimatic, gave 2 TEDx talks, and created a methodology that builds confidence in young female entrepreneurs. In addition to working with leaders at companies like Facebook and with organizations like the NYPD, she’s spoken at UN Conferences, given Congressional briefings, keynotes, and has been featured by Forbes, NBC and Goop. Her mission is to work toward building a world where coffee is the catalyst that inspires deeper listening, safer spaces and hence, greater access to our own creativity, connection and fulfillment.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
