With organizations scrambling to adapt to a changing world, the capacity to effectively engage in challenging conversations has become a key competency. Whether the topic of the conversation is delivering a difficult message, giving tough performance feedback, or confronting insensitive behavior, the reluctance most managers feel about having challenging conversations is common.

  • Stating your concerns directly
  • Probing for information to gain deeper understanding
  • Engaging others through whole-hearted listening
  • Attending to body language
  • Keeping forward focused when possible
Don't miss this opportunity to learn strategies that create respectful, high trust and innovative organizations where the energy of conflict can be used productively.
