When dealing with people, you have to deal with change. Change can sometimes manifest itself as a difficult conversation.
If you have read any books on facilitating these difficult conversations, you will find lots of great advice like: listen, bring facts to the table, don't make it personal, be kind, and come to the discussion with an authentic willingness to help.
Our speaker likes to think of difficult conversations as conversations about misalignment. No one is trying to be difficult, but sometimes there is a misalignment between what we need as managers and the results we get from a team member.
The real trick is to find out the cause of the misalignment and surgically align it together with the person.
Join our speaker, Alon Sabi, Senior R&D Manager at ACL, on October 25th to unravel the way to have deep, meaningful conversations to align with individuals on your team.
Thanks ACL for hosting this event. Feel free to invite your friends or fellow managers to join us as well.
