Unfortunately, difficult conversations need to happen in the workplace. There are situations where someone has to be let go, told that they aren’t being promoted, or receive a poor performance review – common scenarios where a hard conversation is necessary. But despite their prevalence, these kinds of conversations don't have to be feared or dreaded – rather, they can be handled in such a way that increases self-confidence and encourages an environment of positivity.

Navigating Difficult Conversations introduces participants to a seven-stage process for taking control in tricky situations and minimizing negative backlash to affect an environment of reduced stress, increased trust, improved relationships, and higher productivity. With realistic examples and role-playing activities, this program helps participants as they prepare, carry-out, and close difficult conversations in the most productive manner. It leads them to embrace – rather than fear – confrontation and produces long-lasting benefits for both the employee and organization.
