In order to make the impact of the workshop immediate, Alan would like to receive (by mail at [email protected]) some simple, real-life examples of challenging meetings you have coming up in your diaries – for example, making a difficult request, announcing difficult news, giving feedback up or down the hierarchy etc. Please describe in one or two lines (without using the real names of the people or companies concerned) who you need to talk to, what you want to say or ask for and what your relationship with the other person is, both in terms of hierarchy (“she’s my boss”; “we’re at the same level” etc) and at a personal level (“we don’t really know each other”; “we’re friends as well as colleagues”; “we work together but keep our distance” etc.)
Alan will only be able to address 2 or 3 of the examples provided – but if he’s unable to use your example in the workshop, he will make himself available by ‘phone or mail after the workshop to give suggestions and advice on any example which has been submitted.
The workshop will be run by Alan Palmer
