How To Talk About Difficult Topics At Work: Conflict, Criticism & Sensitive Subjects
|Date / Time:
Have you ever had a disagreement with a co-worker blow up in your face? Or tolerated an employee performance problem because you weren't sure how to bring it up?
Perhaps you've wanted to give your boss or a co-worker some constructive feedback, but you were concerned about the reaction you might get. We tend to avoid difficult conversations because talking about sensitive topics feels hazardous or uncomfortable. However, delaying these discussions frequently makes the situation worse.
The key to successfully addressing tough topics is knowing how to talk about them in the right way.

|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.
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.
