How to Handle Difficult Conversations using the Karma Cycle

Published 21 July, 2014 by Marian Way

I was reading a recent article on the ILM website about how managers can deal with difficult conversations at work, when I came across this paragraph about how to deal with issues of poor performance: “The conversations that you have with the individual must be related to the behaviour of the individual and not the personal characteristics of the individual...

On Listening

Published 20 July, 2014 by Marian Way

One of our associates, Keith Gregory, collects inspirational quotes and has been sending them out in occasional emails to his friends and acquaintances ever since I've known him. This morning, quote number 428 arrived in my inbox: “Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.” ~ Karl A. Menniger

What our customers say

"Something really big shifted for me. I realised I had spent a long time trying to be someone I wasn't. Now I am true to myself."
'Discover Your Assertive Self' participant
Discover Your Assertive Self

"I visited Marian because of an emotional problem I had that was affecting my marriage. I found Marian very understanding - we very quickly got to the source of my issues and I discovered ways of controlling and understanding the problem I have. I have found Marian's help invaluable."
Clean Coaching

"The venue and amenities were very conducive to the learning experience and it helped to have a very diverse group of participants who are experienced in Clean Language. I think that level of experience helps to shape the dynamics of the group, and the direction of the learning experience. I also liked: the constant feedback received from the trainers, and other participants; the modelling opportunities; the structure that allowed me to achieve the outcome I set for myself; the after-class sessions; the closing which was very powerful. I appreciated all the things that happened in the background to make it a comfortable and at the same time challenging training... the food was great, the ambience wonderful, the trainers had a good dynamic and were very supportive and congruent, all materials were ready, accessible, available,and there was enough space to interact, reflect and do our own things."
