Why take this course?

Having a difficult conversation with an employee is a delicate situation, and one that, as a manager or supervisor, you’re likely to have. You could be addressing something the employee is sensitive to and aware of, or it could be a matter that they had no idea was a problem. You may need to discuss an underperformance, complaint, or even a talk about disciplinary action. Whatever the issue, difficult conversations can be very stressful experiences. Let this course guide the conversation to a positive conclusion.
