Wednesday, May 24, 2023 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)
What makes a conversation difficult and why do we have a tendency to avoid them? This training will uncover the fundamentals of a difficult conversation whether it be with an employee, a peer, or your manager. You will learn a framework to prepare for any difficult conversation, as well as research based best practices on when, where, and how to have that difficult conversation. While no one likes to have uncomfortable conversations they are necessary and can be extremely helpful in the workplace. After this training you will have the tools and confidence to start tackling difficult conversations.
