When done well, having difficult conversations can help others improve their performance and personal effectiveness. However, the skills of difficult conversations do not always come naturally. This course focuses on the skills needed to have difficult conversations in a way that opens the door to discussion and improvement. The focus is on preserving relationships.

You will learn a repeatable approach that you can use when engaging in difficult conversations.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • turn difficult conversations into problem-solving discussions.
  • explore different viewpoints.
  • apply key communication skills: listen, speak like a diplomat, be direct but not blunt.
  • Explain the bigger-impact picture.
  • respond to accusations.

This course is best suited for anyone who is in a position to manage or develop others, either formally or informally.
