Managing Difficult Conversations
Presented by: Beth Sarfaty, PT, MBA
This 1 hour live webinar, will help you to identify what antecedents may lead to difficult conversations, from addressing mistakes to leaving non-productive behaviors go unchecked for a period of time. Either way, no matter what the cause is, having those necessary conversations can be both difficult and stressful. We will discuss what makes those conversations difficult, why we don’t like to have them and what we can do to be prepared and have a positive outcome.
The objectives of this course include:
- Identifying what makes a difficult conversation between professionals tough
- Recognizing how you can be prepared to have the conversation to encourage a favorable outcome
