Managing Challenging Conversations
Interaction with other people is a normal day to day activity but how can you most effectively manage more complex scenarios? Shauna Hughes, CEO at EyeChange Consultancy, will share her expertise, equipping delegates to feel more confident about how to conduct and manage difficult conversations.
Best practice workplace advice will be explored using, in part, real life scenarios. As a master NLP practitioner, Shauna will explore the use of language and you will learn how to spot when a conversation is heading towards confrontation and how to diffuse the situation using language. Body language cues will also be discussed.

Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
