Program Description

As situations arise in the workplace we often find ourselves running in circles around the ‘heart of the matter.’  Whether it be from a fear of resistance by others or our own discomfort in bringing up challenging topics, a common reaction to difficult conversations is avoidance.  The art of having ‘candid conversations’ is invaluable and can diffuse even the toughest of situations into an open, honest environment where ‘real’ results are accomplished.  This program is designed to walk through how to both provide and receive candid feedback/feedforward on the path to creating powerful results.

Learning Objectives

      • Discuss a culture of compliance vs. a culture of communication vs. a culture of candor
      • Introduce the Radical Candor Matrix as a model for effective Candid Dialogues
      • Highlight best practices in using feedback and feedforward to create productive outcomes for both individuals and teams

Interactivity & Take-aways    

Participants will discuss types of candid dialogues and watch a series of video clips to assess productive versus unproductive candid conversations.  We’ll also share insights on customizing a dialogue to the receiver’s communication style for maximum effectiveness.
