Episode notes

If there is one topic that always comes up in Leadership Development Programme Planning it is difficult conversations, or lack of them.

The ability to talk about the tough stuff is the fuel of high performance. 

Andrea Newton is a woman on a mission to get organisations talking about things that matter. Having had her own experience of rooting around at rock bottom, she encourages leaders to get comfortable with the uncomfortable and make sure they are having conversations that they need to have, whether about performance, attendance or even suicide ideation. 

To be effective as a leader in this day and age, Andrea believes that there are 7 Significant Conversations that we should all be having and her podcast Really Useful Conversations is a way of further encouraging that. to grab the free downloads
