We all face difficult conversations that need to be handled. In the work environment, this can be a much-dreaded conversation with your boss, with your colleague or with a client. The implications and the concerns include:  creating hostility, detachment, disengagement, dealing with a highly emotional reaction that will be hard to manage.

In this activity you will gain the tools and self-confidence to plan, conduct and follow up courageous conversations in your unique workplace context. You will explore the difference between engaging with a problem and resolving it effectively. You will learn scripts and conversations to support you to confront poor performance or difficult situations, or to prepare people for unavoidable change.
