Expect to finish this talk feeling like you can handle anything.

Because you can.

Art of Honesty: How To Have Difficult Conversations

Are you completely honest with the people in your life? Do you put off having potentially difficult conversations, or avoid them altogether? Is your best resolution to stay quiet, hope for the best, or try and get over it? Many times we do not feel safe to tell the truth


Marnie Nir Bio:

Chief Creative Officer | Expert Coach

Humor, compassion, and candor are the driving forces in Marnie Nir’s work as Chief Creative Officer and Expert Coach with Handel Group. After marrying and giving birth to her first child, Marnie started coaching with her sister, Lauren Zander, creating the dream of who she wanted to be as not-her-mother. However, her work with Lauren took everything in her life to a much deeper level. More than a decade later, she is now an empty nester of two, co-author with Lauren Zander of Maybe It’s You, Chief Creative Officer  and an Expert Coach in The Handel Method. She has also continued her creative work, namely as co-creator of the animated series Mother Up!, , serving as an expert at Campowerment, blogging for the Huffington Post, as well as writing her own blog (The Sour MILF). 

As with every area of her life, Marnie’s coaching is characterized by joyful honesty. She brings lightness and levity to her work. “I have zero problem telling on myself. I use my jerk to help others see their own.” Consequently, she is continually inspired by the difference that telling the truth offers to her clients. For Marnie, it’s about building the muscle of Personal Integrity, where what comes out of your mouth is what shall be. “In this way, you can really go from ‘I will go to the gym,’ to ‘I will win an Emmy. And not just say it, but believe it, and cause it.
