Difficult conversations are, well, difficult. Difficult for the person leading the conversation as well as difficult for the person on the receiving end. However, they don’t have to be hurtful, a relationship ending, or embarrassing.
The ability to handle difficult situations and conversations is a skill that can be learned and improved.
As an HR Professional, it is required that you not only are willing to have those difficult conversations with your employees and coworkers but that you are able to ensure that relationships are preserved while having those difficult conversations.
This session with Rhonda will show you how. You'll be given an easy, and fun, a framework to keep you ON THE RIGHT TRACK with those conversations that start with “We Need to Talk”
HR Professionals are the first line of defense (and complaint) in a company. All issues, problems, and personality clashes end up on your front door, and you are expected to deal with them.
How do you do it? How do you tell an employee that another employee has been complaining about them? How do you get them to be willing to not only go back to their job but to not blow up at their coworkers because they are embarrassed and angry?
HR Professionals have the unenviable job of having difficult conversations. It won’t be easy. It won’t be fun. It needs to be done.
