No one wants to talk about – or deal with – the elephants in the room. It could get messy. It might create dissension and conflict. It may upset some people. It’s like ‘rocking the boat’.
Yet those ‘elephants’ are exactly what needs to be talked about. The longstanding, unresolved conflicts. The annoyances that were small at the start yet now loom large within the culture of your team. All the things that get discussed behind people’s backs, rather than to their face. It feeds the grapevine and fuels gossip.
It’s time to build our confidence in having the tough conversations. It’s time to find our courageous voices. It’s time to build our skills in discussing:
* Mental Health in the workplace
* Bullying, exclusion and intolerance of differences
* Differences of opinion so we reach outcomes everyone can accept and live with
* How we can be professionally assertive – clear, firm and polite in our communication
My style is provocative, not prescriptive. I don’t tell people what to do. Rather, I see the best value I can add to your organisation is to provoke people’s thinking and help them reach their own new approaches that will truly work for them.
Client comments of which I am most proud include:
I am one of the most authentic facilitators they have worked with
They can’t believe how quickly the group feels safe and at ease
I make the complex issues of communication seem simple and new skills attainable by all
The learning ‘sticks’ because the learners have taken ownership of it, as well as taking responsibility for their future.
You won’t need to choose an off-the-shelf program – everything I do is 100% customised to the outcomes each client wants for the team.
And my 110% Guarantee means if I don’t deliver what I’ve promised, you pay nothing, and I pay you 10% of my quoted fee as an apology for letting you down.
In over 30 years of business, I’m proud to have never had to honour that promise!
