Crucial Conversations-Learn ways to manage conflict

In work (and life) conflict is inevitable - we must confront differences in work styles, goals, methods, power dynamics and more. Managers must address performance issues, colleagues must figure out how best to work together. These situations call for having critical conversations. Yet, most of us avoid initiating and engaging in difficult conversations.

In this enlightening presentation, consultant, author and executive educator Marlene Chism brings real-world stories about the effects of avoidance, and the ten signs you might be an avoider. She’ll talk about the three real reasons managers avoid difficult performance conversations and why communication is now a critical skill and not just a soft skill.
