Confident Conversations

Find Out More

Plan, manage, and conduct challenging conversations.

Most of us will, from time to time, need to hold a difficult conversation with a colleague, manager, or member of staff. Challenging topics for conversations can include performance issues, dismissal or redundancy, interpersonal clashes, unwanted criticism, or other aspects of someone’s conduct, including allegations of bullying or poor treatment.

Our Confident Conversations course shows you how to plan, initiate, and manage a more positive discussion about any sensitive topic: helping you stay in control of both sides of the conversation and ensuring that you can achieve your objective for the interaction.
