The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™ 1-Day Workshop
“To confront” does not have to mean “to create conflict.”
It doesn’t matter if you are the chair of the board or an intern, if you run your own business or if it’s within your family:
We all have conversations that we tend to dread, fear, or avoid.
Usually this is because we either don’t want to ‘be difficult’ ‘stir things up’ ’cause friction or hurt’ OR we don’t want to face an uncertain reaction or unknown consequences.
People would rather suffer in silence, assuming that to say something will create a negative effect (when, more often than not, to say something can create a solution.)
So suffer we do….and continue to do as problems, grievances, issues, irritations build up one upon the other – until it feels ‘too late’ to say something, it’s gone ‘too far’ so now the situation has to be ‘put up with’.
Either that – or it builds and builds and builds until something breaks or boiling point is reached and some kind of eruption feels inevitable.
What if there were another way?
Let me introduce you to The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™
This is a powerful tool which will help you dramatically reduce the ‘noise’ in your head and decrease the stress you hold around having challenging conversations. How would it feel to be able to approach those conversations without trepidation, rather than simply avoid them until the inevitable happens?
“The Whole Voice Method ™ is a refreshing way to think through how to approach challenging conversations. It encouraged new thinking…making sure I cleared away the noise.
Judith wants you to succeed, so she is driven in wanting to help you get what you need out of the challenging conversation that you need to have.”
(Sarah Haydon Independent Director.)
In this one-day workshop we will look at the impact of challenging conversations and how avoiding them also creates stress and dissatisfaction.
I will help you explore both your skills and challenges with communication and what situations or people you might embrace or avoid.
Firstly we will look at:
- What constitutes a challenging conversation
- The types of people that you find challenging
- The types of situation that you find challenging
- How personality impacts communication
Then, of course, I will take you through each step of The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™
You can use the method both on the day of the workshop to create a structure for a pending conversation in your life, and more importantly so that you fully understand how it works so that you have a tool for life to:
- Reduce stress
- Be able to speak up sooner
- Improve personal and professional relationships
- Improve personal and professional situations
- Have a whole new awareness of how to approach your fears around these conversations
- Learn clear frameworks for conversations that you need to have
- A life-long tool to use for any future challenging conversations you face.
This course is for you if any of the below apply:
- You hate having difficult or challenging conversations
- You feel this is holding you back in your personal and/or professional life
- You have people – or types of people – that you avoid speaking to regularly
- You know this is regularly adding to your stress levels
Through working with my clients I have devised The Whole V.O.I.C.E Method™ which is a simple process to follow for any and all challenging conversations you need to have. Amongst other situations, it has been used to:
* Give a grievance at work
* Confront ongoing challenging people or situations
* Give difficult feedback
* Set better boundaries in personal and professional relationships
* Get clarity
* Manage & improve working relationships
* Manage & improve personal relationships
So far as I know …it has been used between:
* Chair of board of bank to CEO of bank
* Staff member(s) to MD of company
* Team member to manager
* Colleague to colleague
* Business owner to client(s)
* Child to parent
* Parent to child
This structure will be shared with you in full, so that you have this tool at your disposal for the rest of your life to take the stress out of saying what needs to be said – and to say it in a way that greatly reduces the chance of creating conflict.
This will be a practical and supported space where you will be with other people who have similar challenges to you. You are not alone.

In order to keep confidentiality within the group and to acknowledge awareness of the emotions of this work, you will be asked to sign an agreement form to participate in the event.
If you have any questions please contact Judith before booking your space.
I’m wary of potentially getting emotional in front of a group of strangers – is this likely? The short answer is yes, it is possible that you might feel a range of emotions from frustration and anger to hurt and upset. You might also feel joy, delight and elation as we create a way through approaching the conversations that are difficult for you. You will get the chance to work on a current difficult conversation – so anything you’re feeling about that might arise. Please know that this is a safe space, that you are free to leave the room to collect yourself if you wish at any time – and one of my super-powers is holding space for people.
I don’t have a current difficult conversation to work through is this for me? Yes. This course is for anyone who ever finds it confronting to say something that might not be well received and wants a way to feel more able and confident to approach those situations.
Is the venue accessible? Yes. And being close to Waterloo station there are all sorts of transport options too.
