On deck: Crucial Conversations
Beginning Tuesday, October 15 we will be diving into the topic of Crucial Conversations.  What is a "crucial conversation"?  A conversation is considered crucial when three elements are present:
1.    The stakes are high
2.    Opinions vary
3.    Emotions run strong
We have all had these types of conversations and will undoubtedly have many more in the future.  What ironic, though, is that the more crucial the converstaion, the less likely we are to handle it well.

Using the best-selling book "Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High" we will spend three weeks exploring the dynamics of crucial converstaions so that we can be at our best when it matters most.
