Map and Directions

No one likes to have difficult discussions or raise topics that may make us, or others uncomfortable, and in fact, it’s quite normal for us to dislike conflict and avoid challenging situations. However we are not doing our own organisation, internal departments, employees, colleagues, customers and even clients any favours when we avoid these discussions.

In the complaints setting where we frequently need to discuss difficult topics Courageous Conversations are regularly required. It takes courage, skill and technique to ensure that these exchanges end up being productive delivering outcomes for your organisation.

This workshop explores how to have Courageous Conversations that are effective and produce results. You’ll learn a proven model that will enable you to deliver bad news, discuss poor performance, influence others and provide feedback.
