How did you go?
Phew....you went in. You had that tough conversation. It's complete. It's all done, right??
Not so quick maestro.
Tough conversations are one of the greatest learning opportunities in your career as a leader. So don't skip over the learning that will help you out next time. It's time to pause, and self-evaluate. What worked? What didn't? What do you want to make sure you don't forget for next time?
TAKE 5 to answer these 5
Take 5 minutes to download the handout and reflect on how you showed up before, during and after the conversation.
In particular -
* HOW DID YOU SET YOUR COMPASS BEFORE THE CONVERSATION?
* WHAT STATE WERE YOU ABLE TO MAINTAIN DURING THE CONVERSATION?
* IF OTHERS WERE WATCHING HOW YOU WERE FOLLOWING UP AFTER THE CONVERSATION WOULD THEY BE IMPRESSED?
Consider what you might change, adapt, or do differently either in this circumstance or for future tough stuff conversations that you will need to have.
Download the handout below and use the 5 questions as a self-evaluation checklist.
Now you've got yourself sorted, let's look at the NEXT STEPS in the process.
