Courageous Conversations at Work

Coaching people into the new

We’re only human. So when the going gets tough, it sometimes feels better (safer) to just keep still. To go with the flow, right? At the same time we do realize that - by doing so – we, our team, our organization might miss out on something. Managers and coaches then get the ungrateful task to start pulling and pushing people… mostly in vain. What if in a work environment people would more often dare to show themselves, to speak up, to act? And how could you get people to push their own boundaries, how can you cultivate bravery? For sure not by keeping quiet.

How about you?

This training aims for managers and coaches willing to keep boosting their own bravery at work and meanwhile enabling others to cultivate a similar mindset. Peope skills are not your issue, you particularly want to grasp how you can coach others in pushing their boundaries.

After this training...

  • You comprehend the (pretty complex) concept of courages conversations: what hinders versus what fosters?
  • You are not allmighty but with new insights and techniques bounderies become negiotable in your coachings
  • You are given tools to stimulate bolder thinking and braver acting in your (team) environment

Courage. It’s a very personal thing, unique for every individual. Yet, in our experience, the road towards it, is the same for everyone. And while you can never force bravery, interventions and tools to get people pushing bounderies do exist. Every time that happens... what a blast!
