Tools for Talking
When Stakes are High!
Why Crucial Conversations?
Whenever you are not getting the results you are looking for, it is likely a crucial conversation is keeping you stuck. Whether it is a problem with poor quality, slow time-to-market, declining customer satisfaction, or a strained relationship—whatever the issue—if you cannot talk honestly with nearly anybody about almost anything, you can expect poor results.

The Crucial Conversations® Course
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. Crucial Conversations teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics—at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you will surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

What Does The 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
