LTN Presents: Difficult Conversations
December 16, 2016 · 8:30 am · 10:00 am
MacMillan Boardroom, 330 Second Avenue, Timmins, Ontario
Are you one of the 66% of people who feel stressed or anxious if they know a difficult conversation is coming up? We have all had to have those conversations that make us uncomfortable. You stress over it until it happens and sometimes it works well and other times we end up so stressed prior that we can’t say what we wanted to say and the other person can’t seem to hear us. This workshop will walk you through why this is happening and how to prepare for and move through these types of conversations in a productive manner, where you and the other party will leave feeling seen, heard and understood.

Join facilitator Lisa Wilson from L.M.W Consultation for a 1.5 hour workshop on Difficult Conversations. Participants in this workshop will learn the Communication Model, how we see and interpret the world around us, the 3 parts of a difficult conversation and the 5 steps to preparing for and having a difficult conversation. This workshop is geared for everyone involved in the Chain-of-Command, from the Executive Director to those who greet clients at the door.

With close to 20 years of Human Resources Experience, Lisa Wilson is no stranger to difficult conversations. Dealing with everyone from the boardroom to the shop floor, Lisa has had to learn to work through each party’s story to get to a place of understanding in order to move forward in a way that is comfortable for everyone. Now in her business as a Coach, Human Resources Consultant and Mediator, she helps others to do the same.

Join us on Friday, December 16th in the MacMillan Boardroom between 1:30 and 3:00 pm.
