He is trained in mindfulness facilitation by SIYLI, born from Google's training programs, is a certified habit formation coach from BJ Fogg's Stanford Behavior Design Lab, has facilitated 200+ training programs at companies, and has worked with hundreds of individuals.

He challenges his perceived limits through endurance sports, meditation, and crafting a life he never thought possible.


Do you say yes when you really mean no? Do you struggle to share difficult news? Do conversations about race, politics, gender, or climate make your blood boil?

All of these topics are difficult. Talking about them is difficult. Difficult conversations are, well, difficult. They make us feel uncomfortable, awkward, or anxious. A lot of times it feels easier to avoid them.

Avoiding them comes at a cost. Nothing changes. No one learns or grows. Instead, you grow [insert appropriate negative emotion] as you are caught with the same problem over and over and over. There is a better way!

Come learn the 5 step approach in this workshop.

Andrew Wien is a keynote speaker and trainer who works with corporations, individuals, and groups to help them turn toward difficult conversations with confidence.
