Event description
Virtual workshop for library assistants in the Mercian Collaboration facilitated by Diana Edmonds, Bridgford Consultancy

About this event

This virtual workshop for library assistants offers tools and techniques for handling awkward and sometimes emotional customer situations, particularly those where you may have to give difficult messages and handle objections.

Afterwards, you’re encouraged to further develop your own strategies for both group and individual situations.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of this workshop, you will be able to:

▪ Appreciate some of the causes and triggers of disagreement and conflict▪ Manage your own emotions and stress, staying assertive and confident▪ Use a technique for delivering a difficult message and handling objections

This bite-size learning event is both reflective and interactive with break-out sessions where you can share thoughts and experiences with colleagues. Participants are asked to bring with them a scenario where they are required to deliver a difficult message.

Bridgford Consultancy uses the Cisco Webex platform for delivery of virtual workshops. If you’re not familiar with its use, your facilitator will explain at the start of the session.
