    Join Us for a Crucial Conversations FOCUSED® Training: Saturday, October 8

    IMS Headquarters | 515 E. Locust St. Des Moines, IA

    9:00 am - 3:00 pm


    What Is a Crucial Conversation®?

    A crucial conversation is a discussion between two 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 dismal results.


    What Is Crucial Conversations FOCUSED Training®?

    Crucial Conversations teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics—at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

    Crucial Conversations FOCUSED® is a one-day, condensed workshop that provides the foundational skills of crucial conversations traditionally taught over a two-day intensive course.


    What Does Crucial Conversations Training® Teach?

    Crucial Conversations teaches participants how to:

    • Speak persuasively, not abrasively
    • Foster teamwork and better decision making
    • Build acceptance rather than resistance
    • Resolve individual and group disagreements
