Crucial Learning’s latest research shows a shocking 9 out of 10 people have felt emotionally or physically unsafe to speak their mind at least a few times in the past 18 months. But what’s really driving our silence? Are we just victims of divisive current events and a volatile social landscape?

Today’s topics are so divisive and so difficult that they reveal, more than ever before, our style when under stress. If we're not lashing out in anger, disrespect, and judgement we're retreating entirely from social discourse. Luckily, we have more control than we think.

Our study of 1,300 people found a correlation between the stories we tell ourselves about those who disagree with us and our confidence and ability to engage in dialogue. Speaking up confidently and successfully comes down to mastering your story.
