Crucial Conversations Training set for August and September

Whenever you’re not getting the results you want, it’s likely an important conversation either hasn’t happened or hasn’t been handled well. In fact, both individual and organizational success are largely determined by how quickly, directly, and effectively we speak up when it matters most. At the heart of healthy and high-performance organizations are people willing and able to hold Crucial Conversations. These skills are relevant to anyone in the organization and can be used by any program area in any role type with any length of experience.

The Learning and Organizational Development unit is hosting a pilot for the first 25 registrants. Registration will be FREE and is a $233 value. Lunch and materials will be provided. The schedule is as follows:

  • Part 1: Aug. 24 (9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.) – live, in-person
  • Part 2: Sept. 26 (1-3 p.m.) – virtual
  • Part 3: Sept. 28 (9-11 a.m.) – virtual
