Difficult Conversations – “it’s not me, it’s you” Workshop

We all dread that situation where we have to sit down across the table from someone and start an awkward conversation, but sometimes it just has to be done! Whether you’re dealing with an issue of personal hygiene or suspected alcohol abuse, mediating a personality clash between colleagues, tackling issues of poor performance with an employee who may view your attempts at management as bullying or discrimination, or dismissing a good egg who has lost their way, we can guide you through the process and give you the tools you need to confidently approach that difficult conversation and take action.
