Have you ever tried to have a conversation and realized you were having an argument? These are often crucial conversations, characterized by high tension and high emotions, and if not effectively managed can lead to trouble. Join board colleagues from across the state as we dive into strategies to prepare for high-stakes conversations, make it safe to talk about almost anything, transform unpleasant emotions into powerful dialogue, and be persuasive, not abrasive. Join us for a book study of Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan, & Switzler. The virtual book study conversations will be over Zoom. Successful completion will earn five Board Leader Recognitions points.
