By withholding or avoiding crucial dialogue, individuals, teams, and organizations will likely experience strained relationships, lack of productivity, and dismal results.

If you experience tension with your supervisor or a decline in customer satisfaction, it’s likely that a crucial conversation is being avoided. These discussions –when handled poorly or ignored –can affect your bottom line. With Critical Conversations training, your team will learn how to speak up, be heard, and encourage others to do the same.

Details & Benefits of Critical Conversations Training

This training introduces a model for talking when the stakes are high, emotions run strong, and opinions vary.
