We all have to hold difficult conversations at one point or another.
They could include giving some negative/corrective feedback to an individual or having to break bad news to a group of workers.
Some find it easier than others but with the right technique and strategy you can approach these conversations in a more structured and planned way so they reduce the amount of stress that they place on you.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Describe why we find it difficult to hold challenging conversations

- Understand the fundamentals of giving constructive feedback and being objective
- Become more assertive in your communications
- Understand different types of people and how to handle each one
