Research indicates that most people would do anything to avoid a difficult conversation and would rather put up with a negative situation than discuss it.  Stressful situations, especially potential conflict, drains staff resources and will inevitably impact negatively on workplace culture and productivity.

This interactive workshop will put a lens on how you engage as a leader, with an emphasis on building your skills to have deliberate authentic conversations that deliver frequent and honest feedback and tackle any situation more directly.  Such situations can include:

·         Sudden declines in performance

·         Inappropriate conduct

·         Personal problems

·         Complaints

·         Recurring errors / unresolved problems

Drawing from real examples, throughout the session you will have opportunity to apply your learning and practice engaging in a difficult conversation.

This programme is for you if …

•      you are a team leader, supervisor or managers wanting to extend your skill-set to include engaging leadership

•     you want to develop the confidence to engage difficult conversations in the workplace or in your personal life.
