Honest doesn’t have to mean difficult!

About this event

What do we mean by an ‘honest’ conversation? Why do people often find it ‘difficult’?

This session will help you develop your confidence and clarity when having honest conversations and giving feedback.

It’s an opportunity to enhance your existing skills in having difficult conversations, structuring information in a non-emotive way, giving clear feedback and delivering messages with empathy and compassion. It will help you understand which types of conversation you struggle the most with – and how to manage them better.

What’s in it for you?

  • Understand what honest conversations are and why they’re important
  • Be able to identify and manage your emotions
  • Develop strategies for getting key messages across
  • Enhance your ability to give feedback effectively
