Scott's topic at #NATCON24:
Difficult conversations -- 
transforming conflict into connection

As a leader, you face difficult conversations - anything you find hard to talk about but know that you need to - every day: dealing with unions, managing people, improving performance and productivity. (Of course, we all face difficult conversations in our private lives also.)

While you may be experienced in them, not many people look forward to having these difficult (but necessary) conversations. And most of us would admit we could do them better.

The issue is often how to start those sensitive conversations, so that they invite open and constructive dialogue – and not fuel tensions and create further division.

When interactions become difficult, emotions can escalate and communication can break down. We can fear having the difficult conversation as we don’t want to make the situation worse. If we can’t avoid it, we blunder (unsuccessfully) through it. 

Scott shares the necessary understanding, skills and confidence you need to successfully transform conversations from difficult and unwanted to connected and confident through a simple 3-step process.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Avoid the 3 biggest pitfalls when having a difficult conversation
  • Develop a mindset that invites open and authentic communication
  • Implement strategies to keep you mindfully centred within the chaos of conflict
  • Implement a 3-step process that will transform conversations from 'difficult' to 'connected'

Armed with these essential insights and skills, and with a proven process to follow, you’ll transform conflict into connection, and strengthen and deepen your key relationships.
