The power of having a courageous conversation | Best Practice, ABC RN

May 18, 2018

Have you ever had a strained relationship with a colleague or manager? If so, how did this affect the team’s productivity? What about your own mental health?


It is not uncommon for tensions or unresolved issues to simmer beneath the surface in the workplace. When underlying issues and “bad vibes” are not properly addressed, this can lead to major dysfunction within teams and an increasing sense of toxicity within the workplace culture.


Issues within the workplace need to be addressed. Often this means that a manager or employee must find the courage to have some difficult conversations about what is going on.


This is not easy to do.


WorkPlacePLUS team member Carmen Hurwitz spoke with Richard Aedy on ABC Radio National's Best Practice about conflict resolution, the role of an independent mediator and why you should train your staff to have courageous conversations at work.
