Most of us have been there: you need to have a difficult conversation with a co-worker but it’s stressing you out. So you procrastinate or avoid it altogether and hope it will go away.
How’s that working for you?
Not too well, I would guess. Conflict avoidance, while it may be the most often-used tool in the box, isn’t the most effective. And it takes up a lot of bandwidth–not just yours, but that of the whole organization.
Many times we put off these conversations because we aren’t really sure how to move forward. If you would like to get some tips on having a constructive conversation on a difficult issue, consider participating in the next Reid Group teleseminar:
