Courageous Conversations

Conversations that will help you to create a high performing team where people love to work.


Your job as a manager is to make sure your team members have everything they need to deliver outstanding results.

This is true whether you are managing face-to-face or online – it's just much harder to do when you are managing remotely. Misunderstandings can happen. You may even be tempted to avoid important issues.

This online session will equip you with the practical skills you need to have the right conversations with your team members, especially when conducted by phone or video meeting. Conversations that will help you to create a high performing team where people love to work.
