Managing Difficult Conversations in the Workplace

Managing Difficult Conversations in the Workplace EDM image

When working closely with others in the workplace, we often face tricky situations on a range of topics: negotiating better conditions, persuading a manager of the worth of a project, or delivering tough news to a team member.

Learning to navigate these difficult conversations skilfully will not only help you establish your credibility with others, but also help you develop meaningful relationships.

In this workshop, you will learn about:

  1. Adopting the right mindset and building confidence to handle difficult conversations
  2. Anchoring the North Star: Using powerful outcome framing to find common goals 
  3. Useful strategies to tackle such conversations
  4. Tactics for engaging the brain during stressful conversations
