“This programme is highly recommended by me since I feel that managing uncomfortable conversations is a crucial skill for Executives. This programme has been carefully designed by KoeN MetaConsulting so that you can practise utilising simple, powerful ways to deal with challenging talks and difficult individuals.”

– Rupavahini Selvaraj, Vice President, NatWest Group, Chennai

“Before this program, I would not speak up much during meetings, but after attending DiffCons, I find that I am speaking freely. I have started applying the ‘recipe’ that we learned for preparing for difficult conversations. Doing this helped me obtain approval from my HOD for adding resources to meet project timelines, which would not have happened had I used my old approach of being argumentative and not listening to my HOD’s point of view.”

Where do I start ?

Handling relationships and negotiating outcomes can be
overwhelming. Let’s start with YOUR real-life situations and use a step-by-step process to get cracking.

How do I create buy-ins ?

All situations are not the same. But they all have certain common elements. Learn the underlying algorithm to get buy-ins, irrespective of the situation you are in.

How to make learning stick?

Learning need not stop at the end of a training program. Get the tools and mindset to create a plan for practice and stick to it.

What does it take to build trust ?

Trust is a two-way street. As a leader, learn to enhance your soft power to take the lead and create trust.
