Critical Conversations – Giving Tough Feedback & Getting It Accepted

Delivering tough feedback is not fun – but is extremely important for the health of the organization. The question is: how can I help my team be more effective with their conversations, so they produce positive outcomes? This highly interactive workshop will focus on methods of giving the tough feedback and getting it accepted. Techniques explored will help your managers master the art of tough conversations. Every good conversation must accomplish three goals based on the I.N.S.P.I.R.E Model for giving tough feedback:
• Draw attention to the issue
• Create a two-way dialogue
• Inspire and confirm the commitment to new behaviors
