Course: 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Location: leeds
Difficult Conversations are the ones we’d rather put off. They consume our thinking leading up to them, they are uncomfortable, awkward and sometimes intimidating. It can be painful while they’re happening and then we ‘replay the mind tapes’ afterwards - with ‘what we said’, and then with ‘what we wished we’d said’ and then with ‘what we really felt’ and it can cause all those emotions all over again. Left unsaid, these conversations fester, distort & affect our relationships. Done badly, they erode morale and affect performance. And they can cause stress, anxiety, apathy and frustration for everyone concerned.
