Law Office Communications Workshop

Saturday, June 15, 2013, from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Description

As the authors of the book Crucial Conversations suggest: *A crucial conversation is a discussion between two or more people where stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. When we face crucial conversations, we can do one of three things: We can avoid them, we can face them and handle them poorly, or we can face them and handle them well. Ironically, the more crucial the conversation, the less likely we are to handle it well. We often hold things inside by going silent until we can take it no longerand then we drop a bomb. In short, we move between silence and violencewe either dont handle the conversation, or dont handle it well. We may not become physically violent, but we do attack others ideas and feelings. When we fail a crucial conversation, every aspect of our lives can be affectedfrom our careers, to our communities, to our relationships, to our personal health.*

This workshop will help you learn how to speak in these crucial moments effectively so that you can accomplish the results you desire and not offend anyone in the process.
