Challenging Conversations lead you to a Brick wall

Another day in the office and another challenging conversation, sound familiar? All internal auditors meet non-co-operative subjects, managers that challenge their work, or staff that just don’t want to listen. This course gives you ten core strategies to deploy to help keep you in the driving seat.

Who should attend?

This course is open to all.

What will I learn?

After completion you will be better able to:

  • Keep calm and stay in control of demanding situations;
  • Save energy and time in reaching agreements; and
  • Understand better how to deal with difficult human beings.

The course is accompanied by a manual that holds course notes and descriptions of strategies.
