Don't just muddle through critical workplace disputes.

When critical workplace issues arise, you need to get the right people together and act swiftly and methodically. Avoiding critical workplace conversations is unproductive

Plan of action

At some stage we all have to engage in a conversation that can be both difficult and controversial. 'How to have critical conversations' is a program designed to equip you to resolve critical issues and accelerate performance

What are Critical Conversations? A discussion between people when:

  • The stakes are high.
  • Opinions vary.
  • Critical thinking is imperative.
  • Emotions run strong.
  • Improved performance is necessary.

Learn the tools to build your confidence & capability to hold these conversations and how to increase performance by 30%.

How comfortable am I to have the conversations I know I have to have? Ask yourself the following:

  • Why do I avoid difficult conversations?
  • Am I concerned with hurting the other person's feeling?
  • Is my understanding of my style under pressure clear enough to have these discussions?
  • How do I start initiating these hard conversations?
  • Will I be too blunt?
  • How do I stop the conversation getting out of hand?
  • How do I manage those emotional situations?
  • Will I know it is critical to have the conversation?
  • How do I give feedback which motivates people?

If you would like answers to these questions, attend this interactive and practical workshop.

"Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it." - Robert Frost
