Effective Communication: A Strategy to Reduce Farm Stress

Effective Communication: A Strategy to Reduce Farm Stress



It's the time of year where many farm families and friends are getting together for celebrations. It can be easy to let farm and business discussions creep into family time, increasing stress levels.

In this webinar, we will talk about communication styles, generational differences, and how to engage in active listening techniques. Then we will make the case for why you might want to schedule important business discussions, for example, conversations about farm transition, for another time of year.
