How leaders lead has a lot to do with the work culture they create. The Change Forum's coaching clinics equip leaders with the conversational, relational and emotional skills they need to create vibrant, connective work cultures and bring out the best in themselves and their teams.

Emotional Intelligence and Difficult Discussions are two of the most consistent  themes that feature in leaders' enquiries for coaching support...

“Excellent workshop and a guide that’s easy to follow with great topics and useful exercises. It’s given me a new mindset and I’ve put many techniques into practice with great results." Alice Crompton, Southern Qld Institute of TAFE

Dealing with Difficult Discussions

DARWIN May 7-8… ?? 15-16…

A 2-day conversation skills clinic for everyone 

Challenging, confronting or contentious conversations cause so much conflict and stress in workplaces. They're something we could all learn to handle better. Poorly handled or avoided, they detract from performance and erode work relationships. Trust evaporates, misunderstandings multiply and productivity plummets.

This 2-day conversational coaching clinic equips you with a robust set of tools to navigate your way through those troublesome moments. Practise a more methodical, controlled and step-by-step approach to take the heat out of those close conversational encounters and get more constructive outcomes from them. This clinic will benefit anyone who wants to handle difficult discussions more confidently and constructively – managers, team leaders, committee members, facilitators, trainers, customer liaison officers.  It equips you with easy-to-use tools and durable tips and techniques to:

bullet

Defuse difficult discussions and convert confrontations into constructive conversations.

bullet

Understand what makes some discussions so difficult

bullet

Diagnose your own tendencies when the conversational heat gets turned up

bullet

Avoid common mistakes that crop up in difficult discussions

bullet

See the deep patterns at play in difficult discussions

What do people say about this highly regarded and interactive seminar?

“Fabulous learning experience! Anyone who has to deal with difficult discussions should do this course.” Georgina McGrath – Q Health
“A winning combination! Course materials well-written, comprehensive and easy to navigate, a facilitator knows the course content inside out, and a conversational style adopted throughout the 2 days that put attendees at ease, so they willingly shared personal experiences” Tony Rolls – State Development
“Everyone can benefit from this clinic... A very positive learning experience... a comfortable, safe environment, very well structured and with a nice informal approach. It’s very easy to be involved in this clinic regardless of degree of experience. And the guide will be of enormous benefit for future referral” Kim Cree – Rockhampton Regional Council
