Having difficult or uncomfortable conversations in the workplace is common in our sector. Whether it be providing constructive feedback to a student, negotiating salary or working hours, calling out bad behaviour, challenging manuscript authorship, or maybe just saying no. Even so, we often don’t have the confidence, or the skills, to have these conversations effectively.
At this event we are excited to welcome Rachel Service, CEO at Happiness Concierge, who will take us through a framework for having courageous conversations in a way that leaves both participants feeling heard and respected, while achieving our outcome.
This will be a practical event, providing a safe space to discuss examples of difficult conversations that are often encountered in our sector as well as time to practise having these conversations in a supportive environment. Plus a delicious hot breakfast and a room full of amazing women from across the health and medical research sector to connect with!
