Handling difficult conversations

Duration: 45 minutes

It could be addressing someone’s behaviour or work performance, breaking the news about redundancies, turning someone down for promotion or trying to get a long-term absentee back to work. Whatever the issue at stake, being able to approach these kinds of difficult conversations constructively is a crucial skill for managers. A positive outcome can mean the difference between an employee becoming more engaged and productive, or getting increasingly dissatisfied, going absent or even making a grievance claim.

This course uses powerful original drama and insight from leading workplace mediation experts to look at difficult conversations in a new light and demonstrate how to achieve the outcome you want.
