Difficult conversations: how to make them easier

Provider: Louise Schubert (link)
For:Mid-career and senior scientists, and support staff

This course will help team and project managers deliver difficult feedback to change how people carry out their work. This kind of feedback is referred to as a difficult conversation. People tend to feel stress before entering into these situations and very often postpone them until the situation deteriorates and is even more difficult to manage.

The course will help science leaders and managers feel confident when faced with giving feedback about difficult behaviours. Participants will consider a variety of tricky situations, consider the psychological dynamics at play and develop the necessary skills to handle these situations.
