A “Crucial Conversations” workshop will be offered by Darlene Liesch, emeritus UCCE advisor, and Linda Marie Manton, executive director of ANR Staff Personnel. The 14-hour training will be offered on May 18-19 in Davis.
The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. the first day and conclude by 3 p.m. the second day. The workshop is open to all ANR academics and staff. The interactive workshop has a minimum session size of 10 people with a maximum of 20, which allows for small group and one-on-one interaction and activities.
The cost for the “Crucial Conversations” training and related travel expenses are being covered by UC ANR funds and coordinated through the ANR Training Coordination Advisory Committee.
“Crucial Conversations” will provide participants with tools for talking when stakes are high, emotions are strong and the opinions of individuals differ. It will help each workshop participant to build greater personal influence and power, move “stuck” relationships and projects forward, improve personal, team and departmental results, and reduce stress from team frustrations and blocked communication.
