Course Description

Whenever you’re not getting the results you’re looking for, it’s likely a crucial conversation is keeping you stuck. Whether it’s a problem with poor quality, slow time-to-market, declining customer satisfaction, or a strained relationship—whatever the issue—if you can’t talk honestly with nearly anybody about almost anything, you can expect poor results.

What Is a Crucial Conversation?
A crucial conversation is a discussion between two or more people where the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. These conversations—when handled poorly or ignored—lead to strained relationships and dismal results.
What Does Crucial Conversations Training Teach?
Crucial Conversations teaches participants how to:
• Speak persuasively, not abrasively
• Foster teamwork and better decision making
• Build acceptance rather than resistance
• Resolve individual and group disagreements
Outside of class assignments must be completed to earn 2 CEUs/PLUs.  

Class Notes
This training will nourish relationships and develop tools, skills, and enhanced capacity to find new and better solutions to problems. It provides “tools for talking when the stakes are high” – what every school leader needs to be successful.  Participants will be supplied tools to prepare for high-stakes situations, transform anger and hurt feelings into powerful dialogue, make it safe to talk about almost anything, and be persuasive and not abrasive. Educators from the district Superintendent to the teacher leader can gain insight into how to instantly uplift your “crucial conversations”.
