Ever been in a situation when you feel like you are not being heard by another person?
Perhaps you felt annoyed or frustrated by somebody, or have sensed that they feel that way about you?
Have you observed an uncomfortable interaction between two people that leaves a feeling of tension or negativity in the room?
All of these situations can leave us feeling defensive, aggressive or avoidant to other people. In turn, this can affect our performance and damage our relationships.
Imagine having the skill and confidence to have the right conversation, with the right people, at the right time and with a mind-set that ensures it's going to be effective and helpful for both of you. That's what Honest Conversations is all about.
In this module you'll receive four things:
An understanding of when to have Honest Conversations and how to identify them.
Why they are so important and the three key outcomes to expect.
A 4-Step tool to help have the conversation
And finally, some helpful tips to practise the steps.
As you learn to deal with these difficult situations as they arise, through more open and honest communication, you're going to feel a great sense of relief. You'll be invigorated, which in turn will make you feel clearer and more focused, your environment will be more positive, and most importantly your relationships will be more trusting. We hope you enjoy it.
