Need to Have a Difficult Conversation? Here's How to Have It Successfully

Having difficult conversations is one of the hardest parts of being a leader.

It’s emotionally charged (for both parties, my stomach would be in knots too), we worry how it’s going to go (will I say the wrong thing, will they cry, or worse...get really defensive), and we sometimes sweep (and keep sweeping) it under the rug instead. The fact remains, as the leader, you have the responsibility of having these conversations, for everyone’s sake.

And, difficult tasks fall under your territory.
