Conversation for Action – November Luncheon – Nov. 1928 Oct 2014, by Event Archive in
Conversation for Action
In an organization, the conversation is the fundamental tool we use to get things done. Conversations create the future, but only the right conversations create the right future. Ineffective conversations must be engaged multiple times for clarification and correction and still may not produce the intended future. Because we use conversations every day, we rarely think of the skills required to be effective with them. Using the conversation-for-action tool, you minimize unspoken assumptions, establish the right level of trust, and get a reliable commitment to an agreed upon outcome. Join us November 19, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the UCSD Extension.
Sponsored by San Diego County Credit Union.
