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.

Overview

Crucial Conversations teaches you to create alignment and agreement by fostering open communication around high-stakes, emotional or risky topics at all levels of your organisation. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll gather the best ideas, make the highest quality decisions, and then act on your resolutions with unity and commitment.

Who Will Benefit

Does your organisation suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation? Is your organisation battling declining productivity, safety violations, low morale, reduced quality, poor customer satisfaction or other bottom-line concerns?

Then you, your team or your organisation needs Crucial Conversations training. More than 2,000,000 people and 300 of the Fortune 500 companies have used these skills to improve their organisational culture and create change for good.
