At the Emotional Health Centre (EHC) we can provide you, or your employees, with the tools needed to engage in a courageous conversation. Our experienced workplace Coaches and Psychologists can deliver thorough and effective training, and support, for managing difficult conversations in the workplace in Melbourne. We also provide additional support for managing difficult conversations in Cheltenham, and across Australia.
Difficult conversations can involve interacting with colleagues, clients or customers who may be: suffering from a mental illness; consumed by stress; displaying aggressive tendencies; and/or facing issues of grief or loss. Alternatively, one of your employees may be going experiencing a difficult period and require support in communicating their issues.
Why Seek Support to Manage Difficult Workplace Conversations?
At EHC we understand that people, and teams, can work in an environment that involves exposure to highly sensitive or confronting situations. Difficult conversations that are not handled effectively can lead to many unwanted workplace consequences, such as: stress and anxiety issues; mental health problems; poor productivity; absenteeism; staff morale issues; and Work Cover claims, just to list a few.
It is, therefore, imperative that your managers and staff have access to the most effective strategies for managing difficult conversations in the workplace. This not only requires competency of knowledge and suitable procedures; but, also a high degree of self-awareness and the ability to maintain the energy needed to engage in difficult interactions.
