This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen last minute developments. IWL is grateful for Nancy Buffington's expertise and will be rescheduling this workshop on Difficult Conversations in the future.


Having trouble with a coworker? Need to give your client some bad news? Join us for a workshop led by renowned communications coach Nancy Buffington on successfully handling difficult conversations—moving away from conflict, manipulation, intimidation or avoidance and towards listening, dialogue and collaboration.

Nancy Buffington has spent most of her life exploring the power of the word. She taught college English for more than 20 years at a range of universities; after teaching public speaking at Stanford, she came to understand the transformative power of direct, face-to-face communication. She left academia, moved to Boise and opened up a private communications coaching practice that uses a range of psychological, physical and practical approaches to help people find their voices and share their stories. She holds an MA and PhD in English from the University of Arizona; she’s the speaking coach for TEDxBoise and TEDxTwinFalls, and a member of the Forbes Coaches Council. Her book Ruby Lee and the Very Big Deal (a children’s story about overcoming the fear of public speaking) was honored at the 2014 Idaho Author Awards and the 2014 North American Book Awards.

We hope to see you there!
