I’m Jared Peters.
I’m passionate about helping young adults conquer the difficult conversations in their lives.
As a natural conflict avoider, I developed a framework to overcome my fear of conflict.
I used to sit silent and let others walk all over me in an effort to protect the relationship. Through my time with one of the largest banks in the US and experience as an NCAA Division I athlete, I began to speak up. I talked to my coach about my injuries and received a modified training plan. I told my boss that I was feeling burnt out and was allowed to leave work early. I went on dates and felt like myself instead of a polished version of myself. I learned the value of handling difficult conversations effectively.
I wrote Speak Up: A Young Adult’s Guide to Engage in Difficult Conversation, Address Conflict, and Earn Respect to give you the same sense of confidence and respect. You can learn more or buy a copy on the Speak Up page on the website.
