“Conversations open hearts and minds. They make us stop, feel, connect, think.
They give us insight, information and inspire us forward.” Maria Shriver
COVID-19 has shone a light on the state of our businesses, our relationships and ourselves in ways that we could not have expected. Where there were cracks these have been highlighted and exposed. Where there were strengths these have been reinforced.
Many businesses are now turning their attention towards strategies that will enable them to emerge from the pandemic. They are starting to build towards the future, and leadership resilience and strong teams will be crucial. Organisations need a clear and compelling view of their destination, with the bridge between now and where they want to be, built with bravery and compassion.
It is also a time requiring courageous conversations. Leaders and teams must be equipped with the insight and feedback they need to achieve at their best and build the bridge towards success.
Courageous Conversations can be the bridge that helps us reach the desired destination. We often face these conversations and they are challenging and risky – even scary – because the stakes are high, opinions differ and emotions are strong. But when done well, their impact is significant. The skills to have a courageous conversation is a life skill and essential to any professional career.
Courageous Conversations will enable the learner to:
1. Increase self-awareness and empathy
2. Create a safe environment to discuss difficult matters
3. Apply the guiding principles of assertiveness to everyday situations
4. Conduct courageous conversations
5. Grow respect, understanding and trust in relationships.
