Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High | Human Resources

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 8:30am to 2:30pm

Could a conversation (or avoiding one) be keeping you from getting the results you need? Whatever the issue - from poor productivity or declining quality, to lack of teamwork or strained relationships - it's likely that you are experiencing the effects of a poorly held crucial conversation.

Learn how to create conditions where people speak with complete candor (no matter the topic) and with complete respect (no matter the person). Gain skills that enable spirited dialog and reduce deference and defiance. Begin stepping up to tough issues and sharing opinions, feelings and information safely and freely. Learn how to promote the best ideas, save time with fewer meetings, have less disagreement, and build more alignment with better decisions.
