Communication Skills

Making Difficult Conversations Easier

What makes certain conversations difficult?

At work or at home, often it’s not what we say – but how we say it.

For some it might be that a specific topic is uncomfortable. For others, it may be that trying to do “Conflict Resolution” makes us feel awkward.

Often, we know that if the conversation is handled badly, it will result in serious repercussions – maybe making team building impossible. In some instances speaking up (or down) “the chain of command” is stressful.

“For many, it often comes down to personality and style – just simple Communication Skills”

For some it isn’t really conflict resolution as much as some people really are difficult to talk to in any situation.

And some of us simply have a hard time talking to certain people – period.

Of course, in the workplace, one of the most important factors is that after the conversation is over – we will need to continue seeing and working with this person in the future. So we want to get it right – because Team Building is important and ongoing. The main skill? Communication Skills that are effective and persuasive – when emotions are involved, results are important – and the outcome matters!
