Who it’s for

New to mid-level managers who want both knowledge and practice in how to engage in these types of conversations.

Why this course

Logo: The Leadership Green Room, offering professional development, leadership development and soft skills training, is presented by Republic Bank FoundationDifficult conversations, when not handled effectively, cost the business time and productivity. The cost to relationships is a breakdown in trust and engagement. Businesses and organizational culture cannot afford this.

This full-day workshop empowers leaders with the mindset and skills needed to engage in these types of conversations more effectively. This course isn’t about making the hard conversations comfortable. The fact is, they are never comfortable – but you can learn specific skills to set you up for more success when you have to engage in them. This workshop is designed to help leaders cultivate candor, hear beneath the words someone is saying, and explore ways to move the relationship and business forward with both mutual understanding and trust.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discover your personal communication style and triggers during tough conversations.
  • Explore the impact that candor has in your relationships.
  • Receive personalized feedback on your ability to use proven techniques to engage in difficult conversations effectively.

Learners will leave with a deeper sense of awareness about who they are as a leader and how they communicate when things don’t go as planned. This workshop is highly interactive and all participants will engage in and receive personalized feedback on their ability to use the concepts learned.
