Course Description:

A Crucial Conversation is a discussion between 2 or more people where the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. These conversations, when handled poorly or ignored, lead to strained relationships and disappointing results. This course, which focuses on crucial conversations in a healthcare environment, will equip you to have crucial conversations, engage in healthy dialogue, take action and achieve results.

This program, which is taught worldwide, has a proven impact on productivity and quality, teamwork, relationships, performance and efficiency.
