Most of us say that some conversations are “difficult”.
This ranges from dealing with client problems through
to giving feedback on poor team performance. Because
we don’t handle these conversations on a daily basis
it takes longer to feel confident in this area of
management.
This workshop aims to provide a forum to discuss
current issues, a place to learn practical techniques and a
chance to try out new skills.
