Managing the performance of individuals within the team can be challenging. The pressures of delivery can result in difficult conversations being avoided, put off, or poorly executed.
This course provides a framework for dealing with tough conversations about change, performance or conduct and can help the leader catch up on conversations that should have been had before.
Participants on managing difficult conversations will be able to
- Prepare for a difficult conversation
- Define the purpose and intention of the conversation
- Apply a framework to structure a difficult conversation
- Recognise the emotional responses that might occur
- Gain commitment to action and follow up
Packed with interactive exercises our live, two-hour training course gets attendees engaged and provides the tools and action steps to enable employees to approach difficult conversations with confidence.
Our courses are delivered in-company by subject experts either face-to-face or virtually.
