Challenging Conversations Webinar

Challenging Conversations Webinar

Ready to go. 90 minute to 2 hour versions available.


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
  • Plan out a conversation using a specific structure to follow
  • 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
