Expert on Difficult Conversations in the Boardroom
Corporate Keynote Speaker Toronto, ON
The ability to confidently handle difficult conversations is an important dimension of leadership performance and “executive presence.” As a leader, you must be prepared to face the demands of reality, deal with issues before they spin out of control, and move to address systemic problems that hold the organization back. “Difficult conversations” provides the tool kit.
"The Healthcare Private Equity Association (HCPEA) had an inaugural interactive Continuing Education event and Dirk Schlimm was our speaker on the subject of 'having difficult conversations at the Board of Directors.' Dirk was very engaging. He combined background information and many examples on the topic and had the audience participate in simulated Board situations where tough discussions are necessary. We received very positive feedback on the session!"
