Course/Product Description
Title:

Difficult Conversations: How To Address Thorny HR Issues While Preserving Employees' Dignity And Minimizing Legal Risks

SKU:WC-1023701
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Terminations and performance-related talks, as well as those where HR needs to address sensitive issues like employee behavior, hygiene and inappropriate dress, can be some of the most challenging conversations HR professionals must have.

What if the employee cries—or goes off in an angry fit of rage?
How can you present the facts without setting off an angry or desperate reaction? Or, what if something you say sparks the employee to file a legal claim against the organization?

While you can’t control the employee’s reaction, you can take steps to control your own demeanor, tone, statements, and reactions to ensure a peaceful and productive resolution to the issue at hand.

Join us for practical insights into the tools and tactics you should be using to handle difficult conversations in your workplace. You’ll gain practical knowledge on what steps to take to skillfully present difficult information to an employee, whether it’s to give a warning, advise of job responsibility changes or inform of a termination.

Learning Objectives:

  • Meeting preparation musts—including the role of documentation and notes
  • How to set the tone for success and keep the meeting focused on the business at hand
  • What to prepare for—so you can anticipate likely reactions and diffuse negativity, anger, and other potentially tumultuous emotions from the one who’s receiving the news
  • How to strike the right balance of exuding compassion and staying on point to deliver key feedback or other information
  • How to respond when the employee decides to “vent” or go off on a tangential issue from the one you’re there to discuss
  • Examples of masterfully handled improvement plan, coaching, and warning-based talks

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
