As a manager, you’re probably used to dealing with many tough situations. But conversations about an employee’s personal appearance are a whole different ball game. It’s something that we often avoid talking about, or worse, make light of. This one-day workshop has two major themes: a framework for having tough conversations and some common tough conversations that come up. You’ll walk away prepared for any kind of challenging conversation.
