Asking for a raise. Giving a critical performance review. Saying no to someone. Confronting disrespectful and hurtful behavior.

Do you find yourself in situations needing to have these conversations but you tend to avoid them? Brush it under the carpet? Lie low and hope that the situation will simply blow over?

While we tend avoid these difficult conversations – they have shown to have a significant economic and psychological impact on business and us.

In this session you will learn:

  • Understand the impact of difficult conversations?
  • What makes these conversations so tough to have?
  • Tangible frameworks and tools to plan and make the dialogue a productive one?
  • Moving the relationship forward
  • Role Play and hands on practice of your real life tough conversations

Who should attend?

  • Team Leaders and Managers
  • Client facing executives
  • Business Development professionals
  • Anyone who has had to/anticipates having to have a tough dialogue.

    This is a hands on, role play intensive lunch n learn. In small groups you will role play (with another participant) having a difficult dialogue. Each group will have 1-2 practical scenarios where they practice using the tools to make the conversation easier.
