What keeps you from having highly successful “difficult” conversations?

Not sure who in the world looks forward to difficult conversations because they can cause so many outcomes which are opposite of what we want to accomplish. The purpose of having difficult conversations is to solve something: poor performance; lack of clarity; shift the results of work; design a better way of communicating. There are so many issues that come from having difficult conversations.

But, there are even MORE issues for NOT having difficult conversations. We make up stories about the person or situation that exacerbates the situation. We wait way too long to have the conversation. We decide if we have the conversation, the result will be worse…maybe even produce tears and anger. Everyone avoids tears and anger.

The purpose of having a difficult conversation is that we are trying to improve the situation…people deserve to hear what is not working in a timely way. Here is my evergreen article “Delivering Difficult Conversations Successfully”. It will help remove all the obstacles to sharing what is most important to you, them, and the situation.

May we help?
