Whenever you’re not getting the results you’re looking for, it’s likely that a crucial conversation is keeping you stuck. Whether it is a problem with poor quality, slow response, lacklustre
performance, declining customer satisfaction, or strained relationship-whatever the issue- if you cannot talk honestly with nearly anybody about
almost anything, you can expect poor results. Often, when facing critical conversations, people tend to capitulate towards silence or violence. The organization ends up paying the price of poor
employee engagements, bad decisions, dismal results, low commitment, poor execution, followup and further strained relationship. Crucial Conversations® teaches skills for creating
alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogues around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and
encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.
• Speak persuasively, not abrasively – effectively talk about
high-stakes, emotional and controversial topics.
• Foster teamwork – get the right people involved in a way that
ensures better decision-making and guarantees commitment
• Build acceptance rather than resistance – give and receive
feedback in a way that enhances relationships and improves
• Resolve individual and ground disagreements – accurately
address concerns by talking respectfully, candidly, and skillfully
with someone in a safe way.
