IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CONVERSATION!
Today, there are more ways than ever to communicate. Relationships (both at home and at work) are fostered through real conversation and shared experience. They are strongest when those conversations and experiences revolve around something that matters.
Leaders today understand the power of conversation. In an effort to engage with employees, more and more companies are looking to foster a culture that includes frequent conversation. Better conversation drives relationships. Better relationships drive better engagement.
Dealing with Difficult Conversations
At some point in our professional careers we have to deal with them…difficult conversations. At Creating People Power, we believe “It’s All About the Conversation” and want to help you and your employees tackle these conversations with ease.
Whether dealing with corrective action, performance issues, conflict at work or delivering news to a client that the project is delayed, sometimes the conversation is tough. The stress experienced in these situations can affect our performance as well as our relationships at work. The ability to handle difficult converastions respectfully and professionally is an important skill for all employees to develop.
Learn from industry leaders as they share their expertise on how to handle and manage what are often considered difficult conversations and hear strategies they have used to tackle these discussions.
This event provides you with an opportunity to engage with other industry experts and professionals to discuss tackling difficult conversations within your organization.
This is an opportunity to network and learn with other industry experts and professionals to discuss how increasing the meaningfulness of conversations in your organization impacts engagement.
