Webinar: Tough Conversations – How to Discuss What Matters Most

May 17 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Many managers and business owners procrastinate tough conversations with employees, thinking and hoping that if they continue to treat the employee well, maybe the problem will go away. Unfortunately, it rarely does go away, and the manager finds themself in what feels like a hostage situation. Discussing job performance (even “soft skills”), and areas for improvement at work is what matters most in your business! If your employees aren’t performing at their best, your business can’t perform at its best. In this session, you’ll learn practical tips and even some “scripts” to get the tough conversation started. We’ll also talk about good leadership habits that prevent hard conversations from becoming hard in the first place.

The webinar will be approximately 45 minutes of presentation time followed by Q&A. Participants will be able to ask questions in the chatbox, which will be addressed at the end of the presentation, moderated by a member of our team.

Date: Tuesday, May 17, 2022
Time: 2 – 3 PM
