Holding Honest Conversations Training
Do you ever feel you really SHOULD raise issues with someone at work – but yet you don’t raise them? Maybe to give challenging feedback or to manage poor performance? Or maybe you feel that you are not being really listened to? Often, we shy away from honest conversations: we feel awkward, don’t want to upset people, or are not sure how to start. Yet while these issues remain unresolved, there are consequences for us, for them and for the organisation. This half-day course will enable you to explore different approaches and techniques to ensure that these conversations really succeed.
Current leaders, anyone who aspires to take on a leadership role or who wants to hold honest, authentic conversations with others.
