In my Honest Conversations workshops or coaching sessions , we get the opportunity to take theory around effective communication and put it to the test. Most of us have read books or been to classes which deliver the ‘shoulds’ around having effective conversations – but a lot can happen on the journey from thought to speech, and many of us end up watering down our messages and being far less effective than we intended.
In these sessions, we explore what blocks us from tackling difficult conversations, both personally and professionally. We will work together to unpack some of those blocks, and I will offer a practical tool kit to aid individuals as they take on these tough conversations. My theatre background comes in useful here, as I can either take part in bespoke role play personally, or instruct other participants in how to do it, so each participant gets to practice crafting and delivering their message, with me there to guide and coach them through the experience. The class is engaging, interactive, and powerful, yet grounded in practical tools and practice.
