March 22, 2011: OC HR Presents Having Difficult Conversations Without Difficulty
Presented By the OC HR/Sales & Marketing Committees
What are you doing to ensure your work force conversations are authentic?
Two types of conversations occur in business today: reactive conversations and collaborative conversations. Reactive conversations, driven by resistance and fear, are wasteful in that they prevent real issues from being discussed. Collaborative conversations help build trusting relationships, and deal effectively with real issues, thus producing extraordinary results. Reactive conversations are inauthentic and closed resulting in dysfunctional behavior and interpersonal mush. Collaborative conversations are open and authentic and produce extraordinary results. Join us for a highly interactive presentation featuring Strategic Momentum Principal Kobe Bogaer. When a team’s predominant mode of conversation is inauthentic and/or closed, there is a high degree of resistance, waste, fear and resentment. These reactive, conversations produce interpersonal distrust and highly dysfunctional teamwork resulting in higher-than-average turnover and lower-than-average business results.
