Difficult conversations are needed in the workplace. Ignoring issues and problems won’t make them go away and only increases the pain that they cause.
In this informative session, you will learn:
• how to identify the various types of managerial and peer-to-peer conversations
• how to prepare for and plan conversations addressing various issues from performance to conflicts
• how to take a mindful approach to guiding difficult conversations down a constructive path to greater understanding
Throughout the session, Lauren and Amanda will offer opportunities for participants to practice what they learn through exercises and reflections that they can use in their everyday interactions.
