How To Have Difficult Conversations


Dealing With The Elephant In The Room

Difficult conversations are a normal part of everyday life whether in your workplace or in your personal life. It might be saying no to an annual leave request at work; it could be dealing with inappropriate behaviour at work; it could be completing a performance plan; it could be ending a relationship; it could be giving negative feedback or it may be needing to apologise. Regardless of what the difficult conversation is about, most people prefer to walk away from it, delay it, do the work themselves or avoid the conversation completely. This one day workshop will give you the tools and the awareness to be more comfortable, effective and successful in your difficult conversations.
