The Tough Talks

The Tough Talks

2023-12-1328:33

Let's start this episode of HR Besties with some gratitude and love for YOU as we wrap up season one. Then we'll get into the meat of the agenda: difficult conversations in the workplace. There is a need for honesty, respect, and empathy when addressing sensitive issues, such as personal hygiene or performance feedback. And you need to stick to facts and not make assumptions during the tough conversations. Of course, we have some personal experiences including telling an employee about their body odor and asking another to stop collecting scabs at his desk. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
The Besties are talking about how HR is often scapegoated for decisions made by other departments or higher-ups, and they want to remind everyone that HR is usually just the messenger, not the decision-maker, Empathy in HR is so important and it's a huge asset in dealing with difficult situations. At the end of the day ... HR has challenges and rewards, and the Besties encourage those interested in HR to pursue it, despite the difficulties. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Let's talk about handling conflict in the workplace. Of course, we have some personal experiences to share (which one of us walked out of a meeting?) and plenty of advice on how to navigate such situations. Maybe just acknowledging each other's strengths and weaknesses, expressing gratitude, and using people's actual names can help resolve conflicts. Conflict is inevitable, it can be managed effectively with empathy, understanding, and open communication.
