Most people try to avoid difficult conversations with their colleagues, their direct reports, and their bosses at work.  

In the short-term, avoiding conflict, side-stepping sensitive issues, closing your eyes in the face of a scary situation, kind of makes sense.  Life is easier and you just get on with things.

In reality, closing our eyes does not make the situation go away – usually it just allows it to fester and grow.  What was once an irritation, then becomes an annoyance, which turns into a frustration, which then becomes an AAARRRGGGHHH.

What if you found a way to handle these situations?  Some way in which you can achieve the outcome you want, and no one gets (too) hurt in the process?

This is totally possible – although it requires nerves of steel, the stealth of a cat, patience, dedication, and a commitment to honest constructive communication.

If someone is not doing what you want them to do, not achieving what you expect them to achieve, not owning up to their mistakes, not giving you the support you need or not committing themselves to your business – are you going to sit back and let this happen? 

Or are you going to find the resources within yourself and your managers to have these ‘difficult’ conversations?
