Presented in partnership with:


Vanesse Johnson, The Boldness Coach

Crucial Conversations Training is grant funded and teaches skills for communicating when the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong.

  • IMPROVE DIALOGUE & ENGAGEMENT Participants learn the dialogue skills demonstrated by top performers—skills that help you talk with anyone about anything to reach alignment and agreement on important matters.

  • CREATE BEHAVIOR CHANGE These skills turn in to behaviors that improve decision making, commitment to action, productivity, and relationships.

  • BUILD HIGH-PERFORMANCE & CULTURE Consistent behaviors lead to organizations, teams, and individuals developing high-performance cultures based on trust and respect.

We will provide 20 attendees classroom-style training with The Boldness Coach Vanesse Johnson.

The two-day training is from 8:00am-5:00pm on a Saturday and Sunday in October or November.

Continental breakfast and lunch will be served on both days.
