Difficult Conversations are HIIT for your brain

Difficult Conversations are HIIT for your brain

Difficult Conversations are, well, difficult. So are HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sessions. HIIT can boost your physical fitness, difficult conversations can boost your professional fitness – or maybe even your general mental wellbeing, since difficult conversations might not be restricted to your work environment.

Difficult Conversations are actually a great mental workout – in the right measure. Your muscles can thrive on 2-3 short HIIT sessions per week – otherwise, you risk injury. Your brain can probably do 1-2 difficult conversations per week – otherwise, you risk burnout. Your “normal” meetings would be the equivalent of the low-intensity cardio training you do in between 😉
