MAY 5: TOUGH TIMES CALL
FOR CLEVER COMMUNICATIONS
WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA?
Most people want to avoid conflict and potentially stressful situations – this is human nature.
You may find it easier to avoid communicating something that you think is going to be controversial or bad, putting off the communication and letting the situation fester. It could be something small or something big.
A manager may hold off telling an employee that their standard of work is unsatisfactory, or excellent!. You may put off having that ‘difficult’ conversation with your partner (or client), especially if it concerns some kind of wrongdoing, financial or emotional issues. A child may put off telling their parents that they are struggling with classes at school.
That’s where this Freestyle Session comes in. Noel Davidson joins us from the Entrepreneurs Academy to help us decode communication and connection so that we can handle these situations with grace and maturity.
A lot of people can think of times when they have put off having that ‘difficult’ conversation, some have done it for decades. Many will also recognise that putting off the difficult conversation alleviates short-term anxiety. However, constantly putting off difficult communication situations often leads to feelings of frustration, guilt, annoyance with oneself, anger, a reduction in self-confidence and, ultimately, more stress and anxiety. It’s not good, so time to take steps to do something about it.
Join us for another great Freestyle Session, dedicated to quality training, authentic engagement and practical tips to use in your every day life.
