Crucial Workplace Conversations You Don’t Want to Have (But Need To)
A Misti Burmeister Webinar
June 25th at 1 p.m. EST
“I tell the truth, and I am not afraid to say the hard things. They’re not always great. They’re not always funny, but I think if you have a pattern of having the hard conversations, seeing what’s really true, that builds up over time.“ Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook
Over the coming weeks and months, difficult conversations will happen in new ways. The virtual tools we are now acquainted with will undeniably add a unique set of challenges to communications, potentially turning already difficult conversations into impossible ones.
Of course, these impending, crucial, and virtual conversations will be marked with unprecedented levels of stress—stress brought on by fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
Whether you’re dealing with performance issues, getting your team safely back into the office, or trying to figure out how to strengthen diversity, you will need to gain the practical steps for engaging effectively in tough conversations.
On June 25th at 1 p.m. EDT, you can expect to gain the best insights, strategies, and practices that will empower you and your team to have these important conversations with clarity and courage. Ultimately, difficult conversations are necessary for growth, innovation, and collaboration. These conversations have the potential to develop (or destroy) trust, the foundation for success in transforming difficult conversations into meaningful growth.
In this webinar, I will offer simple ideas and illustrations for empowering you to have these difficult conversations more meaningfully in a virtual environment. We all hope to achieve greater levels of excellence even in the midst of great uncertainty, and that goal begins with difficult, but crucial, conversations.
Through this webinar, you will discover how to:
- Engage your team in a difficult conversation.
- Provide feedback in a virtual setting.
- Discover pitfalls to psychological safety, along with specific strategies for avoiding them.
- Communicate with courage.
- Ensure your team comes out on the other side of this pandemic stronger.
