The New Leadership Course

Courageous Conversations
Courageous conversations are usually discussions that are difficult and uncomfortable. We often dread them, or at least stew about them for days or weeks before the discussion actually occurs. They create emotions on both sides of the conversation and tend to be associated with awkward, stressful, or challenging situations. It can be tempting to avoid this discussion and put it off, hoping the situation resolves itself. Most times the leader has a goal or a desired outcome that needs to be achieved within the discussion. This may be a behaviour change, a specific action needs to happen, or possibly a change in attitude. Being open, authentic, and honest while maintaining an atmosphere of trust and respect can be daunting for many leaders.

Resolve Conflict With These Skills

Personal Values and Beliefs
Personal values are broad goals that represent what is important to someone. Beliefs are thought constructs that people apply to themselves, others, the world or the future. Personal values and beliefs help to guide our behaviours and decisions we make. A person’s beliefs can be positive or negative and true or untrue. When analysing beliefs by their polarity and accuracy one can see where improvements can be made in their lives.  This can be done by reframing untrue beliefs and recognising negative, true beliefs as an opportunity to change.

Values and Beliefs Make a Difference
