Tough Talks:
Scripts & Strategies for Difficult Employee Discussions

By joining this 75-minute online, interactive training, you will:

  • Learn the EXACT words to use in difficult talks with employees.

    From poor performance to poor behavior, HR guru Paul Falcone shows you proven strategies and model dialogue to use in those “tough talks.”

  • Treat workers with dignity—and stay in compliance.

    Discover the steps to “positive confrontation” that will protect your career—and keep your organization in legal compliance.

  • Get a 384-page guidebook of sample wording to use.

    Paul’s legendary reference tool, 101 Tough Conversations to Have With Employees, is packed with detailed sample wording to navigate any employee discussion.

The ultimate guide on what to say after “Got a minute?”

Most supervisors and HR professionals never learned how to handle uncomfortable conversations with employees about poor performance, offensive behavior or even personal hygiene. So they typically fumble through the words or, worse, avoid the topic completely.

On October 29th, learn EXACTLY what to say in all kinds of “tough talks” during this dynamic training webinar. Best-selling author Paul Falcone will give the strategies to take the stress and legal liability out of any difficult conversation.

This workshop is a practical, solutions-based guide for supervisors and HR professionals who need some guidance on what to say after “Got a minute?” You’ll learn real-world tactics for handling even the most awkward discussions. Also, the first 25 who sign up will receive a print copy of Paul’s legendary book on this topic, 101 Tough Conversations to Have With Employees.

Agenda for Tough Talks

  • The 9 rules to successfully handle any tough talk. (You’ll want to print and reread before any important employee conversation.)
  • The 4 tools to help employees take responsibility for their actions and problems.
  • How to use “positive confrontation” and the power of guilt to change behavior.
  • A legally safe script to use when employees want to talk “off the record” about a sensitive issue.
  • 3 practical steps to stop attitude and entitlement problems in their tracks.

Paul will then provide time-tested sample scripts to use in addressing some of the most common—and most serious—employee problems, including:

  • Substandard performance and behavioral problems
  • Excessive and “pattern” absenteeism
  • Disputes among co-workers
  • Personal hygiene
  • Terminations for cause and layoffs
  • Foul language and offensive banter
  • Sexually inappropriate actions
  • Time card "mistakes"

And, remember, you’ll receive more detailed scripts on these and more issues in Paul’s 101 Tough Conversations book, if you're one of the first 25 to sign up.
