Courageous Conversations Online Workshop

by | Feb 22, 2022

If you ever struggle with difficult conversations, especially those tackling poor performance or toxic behaviour, then our Courageous Conversations workshop is a key asset to your leadership skills.

This is the first in our new series of workshops aimed at senior leaders in HR, People & Change, L&D and OD. We will introduce new concepts and ideas around the people agenda, leaving you with practical tools to use within your organisation.

Workshop One: Courageous Conversations.

MS Teams  |  Thurs 24 March, 9.30-11.00                

Conversations offer an opportunity for a dynamic and inclusive experience. They evolve and impact the way we connect, engage, interact and influence others, enabling us to shape reality, mind sets, events and outcomes in a collaborative way. However, many of us find conversations difficult and uncomfortable, especially when addressing performance or behaviours.       

A courageous conversation invites a diversity of perspectives, inviting questions and questioning answers. This is especially important at a time of disruption and prolonged uncertainty.           

In this workshop we will:                     

  • Explore why some conversations can be uncomfortable or difficult                    
  • Share current thinking in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and linguistics; discuss why conversations are so powerful and the neuroscience of their impact                     
  • Introduce and practice a proven technique to effectively have conversations with courage, confidence, and focus. 

This session was led by Liaquat Lal, Partner in GatenbySanderson’s Leadership & Talent Consultancy.
