Virtual Crucial Conversations workshops

If you haven’t already participated in our Crucial Conversations workshops, why not join us for our virtual version of the programme? We have converted the existing 2-day classroom programme into five ‘bite-sized’ 2-hour sessions via MS Teams.

This could be the programme for you if you have ever wanted to:

  • Better understand what makes a conversation ‘crucial’
  • Identify the conversations that you’re not holding (or not holding well)
  • Stay in productive dialogue when you’re angry, scared or hurt
  • Speak persuasively, not abrasively
  • Be able to talk to almost anyone about almost anything
  • Turn your crucial conversations into action and results

Here’s what participants from our pilot virtual programme in May said afterwards:

  • Thank you for the truly enlightening sessions’
  • It was one of the most useful courses I have attended’
  • I can only strongly recommend this course to ALL my colleagues, as – at some point – we all need to have crucial conversations’

Who is eligible?

The programme was initially made available to line managers and leaders – we’re now delighted to welcome other members of staff who, as part of their role, communicate across a team or more broadly across the University.

How do I register?
