Based on the bestselling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High, QNET is pleased to present the award-winning Crucial Conversations Training.

Crucial Conversations training teaches individuals and teams from different backgrounds, departments and specialities how to effectively discuss ideas in a way that leads to virtually everyone buying into the decisions. These skills inevitably result in rapid, sustainable, and wide-reaching positive changes in the results you care about the most.

Learn how to:

  • Identify the conversations that are keeping you from your desired results.
  • Identify how you deal with people when you are under stress.
  • Speak persuasively, not abrasively, no matter the topic.
  • Make it safe for others to share their honest opinions.
  • Deal with people who either clam up or blow up.
  • Gain control of your own emotional responses.
  • Speak frankly without risking everything.
  • Disagree without being disagreeable.
  • Influence without exerting force.

In this 2-day interactive workshop, you will learn a proven methodology. The facilitator will model, demonstrate and coach you through the process of applying the skills to engage in difficult conversations to get results without sacrificing relationships. You will be actively engaged in role-play and dialogue to help you learn communications skills you can apply in all aspects of your life. Workshop overview
