Format: Digital Downloads
Difficult conversations are an inevitable part of management. Whether it’s about a failing project, performance issues, neutralizing bickering and toxic team members or a change initiative that won’t be well received…there will come a time when you will need to initiate a tough conversation.
And difficult conversations are scary because the stakes are high and there is a real cost of failure. They almost always trigger an emotional response, and if you’ve never learned essential communication skills to respond tactfully, effectively and successfully, it’s inevitable that they’ll result in anger, frustration and stress.
Which is why the first response to often to brush the issues under the rug.
We convince ourselves that talking about the problem will make it worse. Or we’re uncomfortable confronting someone only to “make them feel bad”. Or we aren’t sure where the conversation will lead and prefer to avoid the unknown.
But avoiding these conversations will only make the situation even worse. And the longer you wait, the more it will affect your relationships, your productivity, the workplace environment and your overall success as a leader.
The good news is that you can learn better, more effective tactics to handling difficult conversations and the resistance that comes with them, helping you to break through the “Discomfort Zone,” and emerge as a more successful communicator!
