What was the most difficult conversation you have had to have in the last week?

  • A difficult school parents’ evening?
  • Complaining about an appalling meal in a ‘good’ restaurant?
  • Raising an awkward issue with someone you care about?

And then, of course, there’re the ones that need to happen at work…

How did you feel about it? How did you approach it? What happened? And did you get the best outcome?

We’ll be exploring challenging workplace conversations - and strategies to navigate them – at 8.45am on 22 November at our free open session.
