    Difficult Conversations

    This three-hour remote workshop has been designed to offer key information to enable you to handle a variety of difficult conversations whether these are necessary at work or important within your personal life. To ensure the session is as practical as possible, please come to the session prepared to share with a colleague the details of a difficult conversation that ideally you should have soon. Alternatively, you may wish to reflect on a difficult conversation you have had in the past which didn’t go as well as you hoped. The aim will be to increase your confidence and enable you to deal well with difficult conversations in the future that may have some similarities. The discussion will be conducted in confidence in a zoom breakout room.

    Objectives 

    • To reflect on the core knowledge needed to effectively “challenge” when you are responsible for the development of others. 
    • To explore some key beliefs which shape our own behaviour and the behaviour of others. 
    • To consider how to prevent becoming “hooked” by the behaviour of others during difficult conversations.  
    • To understand a powerful model that can encourage others to face the need for change when this may feel difficult for them. 
    • To have the chance to practise and thus ‘fine tune’ how best to have at least one difficult conversation that ideally you should have soon.

Lynn was great! She was able to take a 3 hour keynote and condense it into a 1 hour presentation that was engaging and interesting. We got some good questions from the group and the feedback I have gotten so far has been positive. She was a joy to work with, able to work with the time differences and even work through some connection issues early on to create a good experience for all!
