Course TitleCrucial Conversations Workshop - FWS
DescriptionLearn how to create conditions where people speak with complete candor (no matter the topic) and with complete respect (no matter the person). Gain skills that enable spirited dialogue and reduce deference and defiance. Begin stepping up to tough issues and sharing opinions, feelings, and information safely and freely. Learn how to promote the best ideas, save time with fewer meetings and have less disagreement; as you build more alignment with better decisions. This course has been designed to help individuals, teams, leaders and organizations deal effectively with difficult subjects, facilitate open and honest two-way communication and improve unity and conviction among people.
Objectives:
• Resolve disagreements through accurately addressing concerns by talking respectively, candidly and skillfully with someone in a safe way.
• Build acceptance rather than resistance through giving and receiving feedback in a way that enhances relationships and improves results.
• Speak persuasively not abrasively while effectively talking about emotional and controversial topics that have high stakes.
• Foster teamwork by getting the right people involved in a way that ensures better decision making and guarantees commitment and conviction.
• Through individual assessments, gain greater self awareness as to personal preferences, hot buttons and reactions to various situations.
• Describe the importance of exploring other’s perspectives and paths and, with that information, develop a personal strategy to be used in crucial conversations with others in order to increase productivity.
Target Audience:
Ideal for supervisors and leaders who have responsibilities to get work accomplished with others. Also, for any employee who wants to improve their two way communication skills as they strive for excellence in the workplace. (Open to FWS employees and Department of Interior employees on a space available basis).
