Some conversations are tough – tough to think about and tough to have. But the really tough bit is often overlooked. It’s getting the result you’re really after and, at the same time, ending up looking good. So it’s no wonder we sometimes put them off, and sometimes for far too long. Maybe you need to speak up to someone in authority. Maybe you need to tell someone you’re not happy with their behaviour. Maybe you need to raise a personal issue with someone. Or maybe you need to deliver bad news.
But whatever it is, there are sets of strategies you can use to make sure you say what needs to be said, things run smoothly and you get the outcome you’re after.On the other hand, dealing with difficult people can be annoying, frustrating and painful. Although there are 52 types of difficult people, they all have one thing in common. And knowing this allows us to implement a modern approach with modern strategies. Assertiveness or, more specifically, diplomatic assertiveness and the use of Personal Conversation scripts, are at the heart of Mastering Tough Conversations and of Dealing with Difficult People. You will take away from this webinar a set of down-to-earth, practical strategies you can immediately use in the workplace, at home and in your social and personal life.
