Communicating well in difficult situations
The one day workshop, ‘Hard-to-Have Conversations’ provides participants with practical knowledge and skills for being clear and confident communicators – particularly in potentially difficult situations.

- have greater self awareness into your own communication style
- adjust your communication style to suit the situation
- be more confident during challenging conversations
This workshop can also be customised to suit your specific communication requirements. It is available in both face-to-face, and online formats.
