Are you tired of having the same conversations and getting nowhere? Do you know someone who you cannot speak to because emotions always flare up? Do you go silent during disagreements?

Strategic diversity initiatives is proud to offer an upcoming series of workshops related to the book Crucial Conversations by Al Switzler, Joseph Grenny, Kerry Patterson and Ron McMillan. This best-selling book has a foundation of 30 years of social science. According to the book, “Crucial Conversations provides powerful skills to ensure every conversation – especially difficult ones – leads to the results you want.”

The book teaches these skills in a way that shows the reader how to be persuasive instead of abrasive or silent. When the stakes for a conversation are high, emotions are running strong, and opinions vary – you have three choices: avoid a crucial conversation and suffer the consequences, handle the conversation poorly and suffer the consequences, or use the tools in Crucial Conversations and improve your relationships and results.

The workshops are limited to the first 25 participants. Participants will receive a free copy of Crucial Conversations for their own professional library. The dates of the workshop are Oct. 3, Oct. 18 and Nov. 1.

An email outlining the workshops in further detail will be sent out to the participants once registration closes on Sept. 15. Register online.
