 Registration is closed for this event

                            Join us for the Crucial Conversations® Training! 
                                     Presented by Ann Schaibley, J.D. and specially adapted for CLI members  


Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Ann's program at the Annual Forum in December, she is returning to present Crucial Conversations® - Part Deux!

Crucial Conversations by VitalSmarts®️ is a skill-building course that teaches participants how to have open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics. Learn how to speak and be heard (and how to encourage others to do so), and become a more effective communicator in every aspect of your life.

Crucial Conversations will show you how to:

  • Speak persuasively, not abrasively
  • Foster teamwork and better decision making
  • Build acceptance rather than resistance
  • Resolve individual and group disagreements
