How To Have Difficult But Caring Conversations
Most people dread the difficult, challenging conversation that needs to happen. This could include giving unpleasant feedback, following up with your boss about a raise she/he said would happen, but has not (it’s only been 54 days, who’s counting?), or confronting a teammate about their problematic performance and work habits. If these situations are not handled with great care, it could not only explode in your face but also make the other person feel like their very competency and sense of worth are called into question.
