A conversation about redeployment is one of the leader's tasks that require extraordinary attention.
Redeployment is a naturally occurring corporate disposition, but can also be an emotionally difficult task that will never become routine.


Redeployment demands preparation

It is imperative that both leaders and HR consultants feel particularly well prepared in order to make the conversation dignified.
This preparation can be as a specific training of redeployment conversations with a professional actor.

By practicing redeployment conversations with a professional actor the leader achieves practical experience with the situation - but with no real-life consequences.
