Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking about Tough Things, an Online Public Speaking Workshop Photo

​Register for Zoom Meeting HERE.​

Tough conversations happen every day and impact all of us. Often the inability to discuss a problem can be more destructive than the problem itself.   Examples of crucial conversations: 

  • disagreeing with a superior when they are convinced they are right
  • giving feedback to a peer who often gets defensive
  • discussing finances with your spouse
  • talking to a leader who is not involving the right people in a decision
  • addressing someone who says "this isn't in my job description" or "we've always done it this way"
  • This interactive workshop offers practical skills for stepping up to high stakes conversations like these--and many others-- skillfully and respectfully.
