 Dealing With Difficult Feedback Conversations

Tuesday 19th July SOLD OUT
Feedback on performance is always a threat…
so what can you do about it?

“Let me give you some feedback …” a familiar phrase that can come across as a threat, even in its most innocent form. Our biggest fear is that receiving feedback will be negative … it’s scary because it’s abused, over-used, and often leaves us feeling bad.

Feedback conversations are difficult because we imagine they may be ‘harmful to a relationship’. We may delay it, avoid the conversation, store it all up, or wait until it’s too big and too late.
When people disagree with feedback they usually feel threatened, disengage, and protect themselves from harm by withdrawing. Once they clam up, the conversation is all downhill from there!

How then can we give and receive feedback without it becoming personal?

If you want to stop getting defensive, let go of any resistance to giving or receiving feedback, you won’t want to miss the Upcoming Dealing With Difficult Feedback Conversations Workshop!

How to Dissolve Conflict on the Spot when

Conversations Become Difficult!

When people disagree in conversations, they often stop listening to what others are really saying …

Not all conversations are easy, so we may withdraw, avoid them or talk past each other. We may end up banging heads, or become addicted to being ‘right’.

How then do we become more conversationally intelligent?

If you want to reduce conflict to a minimum between your Leaders and Teams, you won’t want to miss the Upcoming Coaching Corner Breakfast!

The focus of the breakfast will be navigating the Escalator of Emotion and stepping down the Ladder of Conclusions …  how to dissolve conflict powerfully and move forward fast for mutual success.
