Your ability to get good results, whether personally or professionally, is dependent on your ability to hold successful conversations. Learn and practice skills that will equip you to get unstuck, even in difficult situations. Skills covered are based on the book, "Crucial Conversations: Tips for Talking When the Stakes are High," by Kerry Patterson, et. al. Offered by the River Falls Chamber of Commerce.
The role of a leader differs in many ways from the role of a technical expert. It takes more than a new name tag; it requires a transition from doing the work yourself to becoming one who fosters the productivity of others. This transition is even more complex if you must lead a group of former peers. This workshop provides practical guidance for those new to leadership or considering a leadership role. By attending, you will understand how to create effective boundaries, influence others, and build your capacity to lead.
If you are unable to attend the workshop you may send a substitute or submit a written request for withdrawal by mail, fax or e-mail. Withdrawal requests received before June 22, 2017 will qualify the participant to receive a refund, less a $20 processing fee. No refunds will be issued for withdrawals received after June 22.
