Challenging Conversations

Challenging Conversations

So, what is a challenging conversation? It’s anything you find hard to talk about, and it can involve a range of factors such as a sensitive or problematic behaviors and actions. It is usually a discussion between two or more individuals where opinions vary, emotions run deep and the outcome greatly impacts their lives.

The hardest part of any challenging conversation is being prepared to handle it. It’s important to stay in charge of yourself, your purpose and your emotional energy. Through our Challenging Conversations workshop, you’ll learn that with the right amount of preparation and reflection of a tough situation, you can effectively communicate and even deepen the relationships with those around you. You’ll learn how to communicate even the most negative or difficult message without creating conflict or destroying trust.

The practical illustrations, interactive exercises, videos and handouts will serve my leadership team well in having crucial conversations with their peers and direct reports.
