Difficult Conversations - how to get them right!

Who hasn’t ever agonised over a difficult but necessary conversation OR avoided it altogether? (Yep, I hear silence here…)

Cameron Shepherd is the master of ‘difficult conversations’. As an HR consultant he’s had to have them on behalf of different companies in vastly varying situations all over the world. Cam has learned through experience, and that’s obvious when you hear him speak. Now he teaches other people how to have these conversations in the most positive, constructive way possible.

And we’re talking not only business conversations here, but difficult conversations we all, at some time or other, need to have with family, friends, colleagues etc. Many of us avoid them, which then creates bigger problems. Can you relate?!

Cam’s a man with a good heart, who’s very open about his experiences in learning how, and how not to conduct difficult conversations. The clarity he gives around this topic is both refreshing and a relief!

Tune in to learn how to “do” difficult conversations well.

COMPASSION - it's not what you think

When Dr. Petrina Barson was a medical student, she found that compassion was not emphasised in her training and, at worst, considered dangerous to a doctor’s ability to be objective. She knew that, as a doctor, she didn’t want to lose her compassion to fit the prevailing attitudes, and went on to make a study of compassion, teaching compassion cultivation to both medical students and the broader community.
