Why are we Terrible at Communicating?

workplace-communicationDespite digital disruption, leadership success still comes from the effective conversations we have with the individuals in our team. Yet so many of us avoid meaningful conversations, handle them poorly or fail to get our point across authentically. Engaging in challenging conversations is even harder!

For many it’s not lack of willingness to engage, it’s often not knowing what to say and how to say it, that detracts from our leadership proficiency. These conversations need to be handled with emotional intelligence, respect and require a clear and simple structure.

If personal development is important for you or your leadership, this 2 hour workshop will be of massive benefit.  

What will I learn?

  • Understand the brain & how neuroscience can help when engaging in challenging conversations
  • How to use a five-step model during tough conversations to handle emotions and opposing views
  • Techniques to see, hear and understand the other person
  • How to use conversation mind maps to plan your conversations.
