WHAT IS CRUCIAL CONVERSATIONS TRAINING? It is a course designed to ensure that important conversations happen and happen effectively. In fact, both individual and organizational success are largely determined by how quickly, directly, and effectively one speaks up when it matters most. At the heart of healthy and high-performance organizations are people willing and able to hold crucial conversations.

WHAT’S 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. When conversations turn crucial, people tend to follow one of two ineffective paths: they either speak directly and abrasively to get the results they want but harm relationships, or they remain silent with the hope of preserving relationships only to sacrifice results.
