Do you ever hold your opinion inside and then one day, when you can't take it any longer, speak your mind—but by then you're so upset that it comes out all wrong? Can your team improve in having “real conversation” in an open, trusting environment? Crucial Conversations is a course that teaches skills for dealing with situations where stakes are high, opinions vary and emotions run strong. “By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll begin to surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment” (VitalSmarts.com).Join colleagues from across campus in this 16-hour course broken into a four day period. We’ll spend 8 a.m. to noon together two days a week for two weeks. Enjoy video-based instruction from the course authors. Engage in extensive in-class practice, group participation, and personal reflection as you explore and master these crucial skills.Please check out this 5-minute video about Crucial Conversations training and why it would be valuable for you. http://www.vitalsmarts.com/make-the-case-video/You might also check out this brochure for an overview of content or review this abstract from our campus resource, getAbstract.
