Fierce Conversations

Learn to have conversations that get results.

Fierce Conversations® teaches attendees how to ignite productive dialogue that interrogates reality, provokes learning, resolves tough challenges and enriches relationships. It’s the place to begin — the cornerstone of great leadership, healthy cultures, intelligent strategies and whole-hearted execution.

Over four half-day sessions you will explore five modules:

Foundations: Fierce Foundations offers an intellectually and emotionally compelling context concerning the role and impact of conversations in our lives.

Coaching: This program helps identify the most important topics at hand. It’s a question-based approach that empowers participants to realize their own solutions and potential.

Team: An unparalleled approach that transforms employees and team members into a high-functioning think tank while shattering silos, increasing collaboration, and boosting buy-in across your organization.

Feedback: An approach that transforms your feedback sessions into candid and consistent two-way conversations that spark lasting change.

Confront:  A straight-up conversation model that shows you how to tee up any confrontation in 60 seconds or less, while shifting attitudes, reducing tension, and enriching relationships.

All participants will receive a one-year membership with unlimited access to all eight Fierce Conversations programs along with all digital materials needed for on-demand and virtual learning.
