Courageous Conversations | ICML

24 November @ 9:30 am - 1 December @ 12:30 pm AEDT

$495
Courageous Conversations Workshop - ICML - Leadership Skills

Virtual training course for individuals

It’s daunting holding conversations with unpleasant messages and delivering difficult feedback. How do you tell a team member they’re not pulling their weight? What do you tell a client when you cannot meet the timelines you promised? It’s not surprising most of us have the tendency to avoid potential conflict. Holding courageous conversations means overcoming your internal barriers and skilfully addressing the issues rather than the person. In this difficult conversations training program you’ll learn to confidently address performance matters, deliver bad news, tackle difficult behaviour and resolve interpersonal issues.

ICML offer this program in two 3-hour workshops over two consecutive weeks. You can attend this program from anywhere: your workstation or from home.

Duration

Two 3-hour online workshops, 9.30am to 12.30pm** AEDT – please check your local time

Small group sizes

ICML limit the group size to 12. This means the workshops are highly interactive and we’ll be able to focus on your personal challenges.

Inclusions
  • Electronic editable participant manual – great for reference
  • A PDF certificate
What you need
  • A device with a camera – preferably a laptop or desktop
  • Good internet access
  • A quiet room.

More information can be found here (on the second tab…)

Facilitated by Martin Probst, PROfound Leadership, on behalf of ICML Institute for Communication Management and Leadership.

Martin provides insightful and practical support, that is directly applied to your needs and situation. He gets directly to the issue, but in a way that gives you much more then you expected, and can profoundly alter your mindset. Martin is a tremendous asset to my staff and myself personally, and I would highly recommend him.

Allowed for the reflection on workplace practices

 

The Motivation and Inspiration in Leadership presentation was a tremendous success, attracting a diverse range and level of attendees. Your presentation was informative and many commented on how they reflected on their own practices. It also allowed for the reflection on workplace practices within their organisation.
