  • Just starting as a manager and need to understand how to give feedback effectively or conduct a constructive 1-1 or annual review conversation
  • Stressed about having difficult conversations with other people
  • Unsure how to tell your manager what you need from them

The Master Difficult Conversations for Leaders Course is for you!

You will get all the tips and tools necessary for you to confidently prepare for your next difficult conversation and lead from a stronger position.

By the end of the video course, you will:


  • Confidently give feedback, good or bad, to anyone, based on my proposed three-step model
  • Learn how to empower your team and get people more accountable by focusing on learning rather than criticism
  • Know how to develop a strong relationship with your manager and other senior leaders through mutual confidence and integrity
  • Gain self-awareness of where you struggle today in your communication and improve from there
  • Build trust with your team, manager, and stakeholders through much enhanced communication skills
  • Know what questions you need to ask in a 1-1 or annual review conversation, in order to create engagement and high performance
  • Understand how to step up with great resolve and tell your manager or another leader that you disagree or that they are making a mistake

Years of experience as a leader and an executive coach have taught me that the number 1 challenge facing virtually any leader at some point in their career is around communication.

It could be that you are a first-time manager, lacking much needed leadership development necessary to lead teams, and you just don’t know how to conduct an efficient 1-1 or annual review discussion.

As a seasoned leader, you may still struggle and stress over with the prospect of having a difficult conversation with someone on your team or another stakeholder.

Or you might have found yourself in situations where you disagreed with your manager but group pressure or fear of damaging a relationship prevented you from saying anything.

Communicating effectively requires much more than just talking.

GOOD NEWS IS YES! I can help you get over that anxiety, stress, fear of having difficult conversations. It is all about being courageous, looking oneself in a mirror, recognize self-limiting beliefs that prevent you from communicating effectively and taking action. I am here to support you taking these steps!

Is it about becoming the best speaker or communicator the world has seen?


Definitely NOT!


Is it about being your authentic leader and communicate from a grounded, confident, and empowering position?


This is a resounding YES!


See what other leaders are saying!

Communication works for those who work at it. - John Powell

I created this 3-video series on communication because like you, I am a leader of a team, and like you, I sometimes struggle when having difficult conversations.

My experience as a leader and a coach clearly shows that communication is a leader’s number 1 challenge, whatever their position, their seniority level, their years of experience.

Let’s face it, few companies spend the time that would be needed on true, relevant leadership development, especially around efficient communication. My course intends to be a step in the right direction to address this deficiency.

My promise to you is that if you apply the techniques and tools I show you in the videos, you will quickly enhance your communication skills and be able to master difficult conversations with anyone.
