Courageous conversations are usually discussions that are difficult and uncomfortable. We often dread them, or at least stew about them for days or weeks before the discussion actually occurs. They create emotions on both sides of the conversation and tend to be associated with awkward, stressful, or challenging situations. It can be tempting to avoid this discussion and put it off, hoping the situation resolves itself. Most times the leader has a goal or a desired outcome that needs to be achieved within the discussion. This may be a behaviour change, a specific action needs to happen, or possibly a change in attitude. Being open, authentic, and honest while maintaining an atmosphere of trust and respect can be daunting for many leaders.
At the close of this short course, you will have the knowledge and skills to confidently lead a courageous conversation in your workplace or your personal life.
This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
