Crucial Conversations Training Offered by LOD This Spring and Summer

Have you ever had an important conversation that did not go the way you thought it would? If it did not, did you wonder why not? You can improve your skills in having crucial conversations by attending the official Crucial Conversations two-day workshops that are taught by the Learning and Organizational Development (LOD) team. After a pilot test of the workshop, participants recommended that the training be two days in person, with time between the first and second days. We now have five sessions scheduled across the state starting in early April and concluding in September. There are only 20 seats per session, so register at the link below to reserve your spot today. The training will be two full days. The typical cost is more than $230, but LOD is able to offer it for $50 including breaks and lunch for both days plus all of your learning materials.

The sessions will be held in Franklin County on April 3 and May 1; at OSU South Centers on May 15 and June 13; at the OSU Wooster campus on June 26 and July 24; at Adventure Central on Aug 29 and Sept 29; and at the Toledo Botanical Gardens on June 29 and July 17. Registration for the Franklin County session will close on Friday, March 24 at 4pm. Sign up for one of the five sessions at

Note: All SNAP-Ed staff will be taking this training in-person at regional meetings in August and September. If you are interested in the training and are limited by funding, contact us about the potential for a scholarship. Reach out to Amanda Rysz at with any questions.
