By design, government makes tough decisions every day. Even well-seasoned budgeteers can recall when they first learned to say "no." This session will provide recommendations from experienced finance and budget officers on how to have difficult conversations; coordinate an effective process that facilitates discussion and collaboration; and involve elected officials in the decision making process early enough to better balance competing demands in the face of varying pressure.
