Managing difficult conversations in the workplace


Having difficult conversations in the workplace is a necessary thing when the situation warrants, yet many people shy away from them, from staff members to supervisors and managers. The price of not dealing with these conversations effectively is very often costly to individuals, the team, and organisational outcomes.

This presentation explores the critical importance of preparation for a difficult conversation. It includes the identification and management of assumptions, challenges, and risk to set the right conditions and present a framework to go forward.

This session will be of interest to public servants, novice mediators, HR professionals and those in line management roles who would like to enhance their skills in this area.

The link to the recording of this webinar will remain active for at least 3 months from the date of purchase. We continue to consult with the given presenter as to whether extended availability is possible. We are therefore not able to guarantee access beyond 3 months.
