Techniques for Navigating Challenging Conversations at Work

Understand the psychology of a difficult conversation and how to avoid the common pitfalls that cause the conversation to fail.

Challenging conversations are common in the workplace, yet we all tend to avoid them until absolutely necessary. What if the difference between avoiding/hating challenging conversations and enjoying and having successful outcomes is all in your head? What if your ability to handle any challenging conversation is merely learning the psychology of why they are difficult, shifting your way of engaging in those conversations, and mastering several templates to practice and use to create opportunities and solutions versus upset and frustration? This material will cover all the salient points to support you on your way to mastery. Become the person people look to for help with creating success out of challenging conversations by committing to learning these key principles and practices.
