CEOs, Here’s my method to managing difficult conversations within your team as an operations expert!

Whether it’s addressing poor performance, conflicts among team members, or communicating changes in company policies, these conversations can be challenging and uncomfortable.

Want to know my industry secrets?

Preparation. Yes, before you have the conversation, take some time to prepare. Think about what you want to say and how to say it. Consider the other person’s perspective and anticipate their reactions. If necessary, gather data or other information to support your points.
Active listening! By lending an ear to everyone’s concerns and perspectives, I can help the team members communicate more effectively. This can diffuse tension and create an environment where everyone can feel heard and understood.
Keep the conversation productive and positive. As a third party, I can help the CEO and team members stay focused and composed during emotionally charged situations. Even in these situations where everyone has different viewpoints, there is usually some shared ground to be found. By identifying these areas, I can help promote collaboration and a sense of unity within the team and CEO.
Follow up. Ensure that action items are followed through on. If necessary, I schedule a follow up meeting to check in on progress or to address further concerns.
