Participants will identify frustrating situations and then experience an internal shift from focusing on what other are doing to what they need.  Participants will learn to eliminate accusatory language and engage in conversations about diverse differences with less judgement of others and with a forward view of creating movement rather than remaining in dissatisfaction or dysfunction. This experience provides an effective tool that enables people to come together and move forward towards desired outcomes.

This highly interactive session to introduce community leaders to coaching as a leadership strategy and give participants a basic understanding how how to use coaching skills in interactions with others.  Dialogue, goal setting, feedback, advice and encouragement - are skills that are universally valuable. Individuals or groups that are "well coached" develop increased capability, becoming better positioned to execute short and long-term strategies and goals. This workshop helps groups access potential by teaching them to leverage diversity and to embrace and manage conflict as powerful creative forces that lead to innovation and growth.

Participants will learn to skillfully address others when they are in disagreement with them in high stakes, emotional situations. Participants will be introduced to the Crucial Conversation Method: Holding the right conversation to solve the real problem. Staying focused on what they really want. Watching for signs that safety is at risk. Making it safe to talk about almost anything. Taking control of emotion instead of losing their cool.  Speaking persuasively, not abrasively. Helping others into dialogue when they are angry or defensive.  Evolving from talking to getting results.
