Ep 222- Your Moral Obligation to Difficult Conversations

What are you tolerating in your culture

A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury. ~ John Stuart Mill

Difficult conversations with difficult people are one of the most emotionally taxing areas of a business.  No one wants to deal with people who have a crappy attitude and a lack of ownership for their behavior.  If you are a leader, then embracing these conversations are a must.  If you are unwilling to have these conversations, you aren’t ready to lead people.  You have a moral obligation to the stakeholders of the business to have difficult conversations.

In today’s podcast I talk about why having difficult conversations builds and maintains the culture and values of a business. I walk through my four part process from my book, The Management Playbook, on how to have this difficult conversation as well.

  1. This is a great podcast! You are correct this is our most difficult thing in business. In the past I would avoid having these conversations because they were hard. Since I started working with Brandon I have learned (and still learning) tools to have these conversations clearly without emotional craziness. Look forward to reading our book!
