Officer Training-“5 Steps to Hard Conversations”

Every week the officers in our command get together and spend 20 minutes on personal and professional development training. It is a time of discussion where we view a short video or read a short article and then discuss how we can use that information to make ourselves better, our command better, and our Navy better; in that order. The training also gives me the opportunity to learn from the collective and share my thoughts and prospective from 20 years of hard won experience.

This week we read “5 Steps to Hard Conversations” by Andrew Griffiths.

Below are our Officer Training Discussion Topics

  • When was the last hard conversation you had? How did it go and what would you have done better?
  • What are some of the costs and benefits of delaying, or not having a hard conversation?
  • How do you get better at having hard conversations?
  • Is there a hard conversation you need to have today?
