VitalSmarts® Crucial Conversations Training® – NEW! (2 days)
August 20-21, 2019 / OSCPA Center, Beaverton
Have you ever been in a meeting where no one is willing to voice his or her real feelings about the project or situation? Have you ever wanted to speak up, but, for one reason or another, you didn’t? Crucial Conversations Training® teaches how to create a culture of dialogue and candor – a culture where people can make high-quality decisions and then act on those decisions with unity and commitment.
