Facilitated by the committed and experienced leaders at Fervid Partners,
this workshop helps people at every level of your organisation develop their capacity to speak up, and confidently navigate difficult conversations.
Informed by the internationally-renowned research of Dr Mary Gentile, and tailored by Fervid Partners to meet the needs of your organisation, this workshop will take you through six basic steps for building skills for difficult conversations.
Understanding your broader purpose
Connect with the broader purpose in your professional life and use this as motivation to speak up.
Identifying enablers and obstacles
Discover what is holding you back from speaking up. Develop the willingness and commitment to articulate your values.
Conflict is uncomfortable, but this doesn’t mean it should be avoided at the cost of your values. Learn how to tackle discomfort by normalising values-based conversations.
Values-based conversations needn’t involve accusations, shaming or blaming. Learn how to shape conversations with framing to express your values persuasively.
Enable difficult conversations by drawing on sources of courage such as the support of allies and mentors who share your values.
Learn how to improve the likelihood of a successful outcome by anticipating the conversation and considering how to respond to the various ways it might go.
