Bluffton alumna encourages students to have brave conversations

2010 graduate Andrea Flack-Wetherald brought her combined skills in social work and improvisation to Bluffton University’s weekly Forum on Nov. 28. The social worker, author and comedian shared tips for holding brave conversations and explained how those difficult conversations can ultimately lead to wellness.

“We’re hardwired for human connection and the only way we’re actually going to feel that connection is by having brave conversations with the people we care about,” said Flack-Wetherald. “If we ultimately want to make a difference while we’re on this space rock, which I think most of us do, then we will only create real impact by collaborating well with the people around us.”

In essence, having brave conversations leads to building trust and maintaining stronger relationships. Examples of brave conversations Flack-Wetherald shared include giving and receiving difficult feedback, setting boundaries, advocating for yourself and collaborating in a creative environment.
