Young Entrepreneur – How to have difficult conversations!
As a young entrepreneur, it can be easy to avoid having difficult conversations. Mastering this skill can really allow you to overcome hurdles and move your business or ventures forward.
In this video I provide my top tips on how to have difficult conversations. Mastering this skill early on will set you up well to achieve your future personal and business goals – regardless of the field or profession you find yourself in!
1) Have the right mindset! Be open minded and focused on coming up with a resolution to the issue at hand.
2) Let the other person talk! Sometimes by just hearing the other person out you realise that the reason for friction is so minute and avoidable.
3) Make your expectations clear! Never ceases to amaze me the number of conflicts and disagreements I see occur due to miscommunication. Make your expectations clear and understand the other persons expectations too.
4) Follow up! After what can be a awkward conversation, follow up with a simple “Thank you for your time” and any action points you agreed upon.
