Anyone who manages a team knows that getting the most out of employees sometimes requires having uncomfortable conversations and dealing with problems is part of the job. Managers also know that putting off such conversations will often make problems worse. Our Tough Conversations course will improve your ability to have those honest but tough conversations that can lead to behaviour change and ultimately better results for your team.
This one day course helps you achieve the required outcomes of Falkirk Council policies. It helps you work through how to deal with the practical issues that arise from managing performance issues like absence and underperformance.
