I found the importance of Breakthrough Business Conversations training was in helping me to listen and develop my direct reports by listening.  It also helped us as managers to be better business people because we are able to hear and consider more business options rather than just our own.

Conversation is the tool of change – and results.

THE CHALLENGES

  • How can we ensure that leaders are effectively using important business conversations to drive business results?
  • How can we ensure that leaders provide employees with clear, unambiguous communication about performance?
  • What skills do managers need to have these conversations?
  • How can important decisions be communicated so as to get buy-in and support?
  • How can we help leaders become more confident and more effective in handling difficult conversations?
  • How can leaders learn to communicate more effectively with remote employees?
  • How can we measure leaders’ effectiveness in communicating with employees?
