Has a disagreement with a colleague ever blown up in your face? Perhaps you put off addressing employee problems because you weren't sure how to bring them up. Perhaps you'd like to give your boss some helpful feedback, but are concerned about the reaction you might get.
Because difficult conversations can feel uncomfortable and hazardous, we tend to avoid having them. However, delaying the discussion often makes the situation worse, sometimes resulting in serious business problems.
The secret to successfully handling these tough topics is learning to talk about them in the right way. Instead of producing defensiveness and arguments, a well-managed discussion can lead to mutual understanding and productive collaboration.
You can also pose your management question directly to Marie McIntyre. And because this is a webinar, there is no limit to the number of colleagues you can invite to sit in on this interactive event.
