Giving feedback and having difficult conversations

The health of an organisation, team or relationship can be measured by the lag between a problem being identified and the time it takes to discuss the problem in a healthy, open and transparent way.

The problem is, people often get angry, ruminate, do unnecessary work or complain to others. This leads to siloed teams, resentment, and poor behaviour we all despise.

Unresolved conflict is one of the biggest barriers to organisational performance. If we can’t talk openly, then nothing will change.
