In this webinar you will understand the importance of having crucial conversations, the timeliness of the conversations as well as exploring the risk of delaying a conversation.
The process does not have to be stressful or difficult, and in this webinar Dr Colin Harrison will show you how it could be quick and relatively ‘pain free’.
The session will discuss productive communication skills that you can use throughout the year. Colin will discuss strategies on how to make certain that your message has gotten through and share with you communication skills that you can use to deal with poor performance and challenging behaviours.
As a leader one of the most challenging things to do is to have the ‘difficult conversations’ with staff relating to poor performance.

• Communication – Understand the utility of “communication styles”
• ‘Above/Below the line’ – Appropriate staff behaviours
• Crucial Conversations – What you should do and avoid doing

• Setting standards
