Managing Difficult Conversations Overview

Our business skills courses are available for organisations to book for their teams. Learning is delivered live online by a qualified instructor in small groups of no more than 12 delegates per course.

The course covers any situation where a difficult conversation is needed to address situations where the needs/wants, opinions or perceptions of the involved parties are diverse, with their feelings and emotions running strong.

We will look at an individual’s ability to handle their emotions in such circumstances and how they convey information in an extremely sensitive manner.  The course will address the skills needed to manage difficult conversations and will use practical exercises as well as case study materials to demonstrate good practice.
