Creating REAL Conversations for #Results

Do you engage in real talks in your live? Or, are you challenged in dealing with difficult people? Are your key relationships poor or strained? Do you get the results you want, personally and professionally? Do you hold conversations to solve problems, only to have the same problems occur over and over again?

If you experience any of these issues, you are probably engaging in “fake talk.” You hold a variety of conversations to address tough topics, but you just don’t seem to get the results you desire. If you want to resolve these issues, create respect, build your relationships, and get better results—you need to learn to hold REAL conversations!

What is a REAL Conversation?

REAL conversations get results, increase respect, and build relationships — unlike “fake talk,” which generates lots of chatter, but never any real change. REAL conversation uses the skills of effective dialogue to increase engagement, contribution, and candor to talk about what matters most.

REAL Conversations for Results Training®

All things can be practiced and during the training sessions participants will be able to work with a variety of real-world scenarios as well as work on their own challenges within the context of the workshop. There are 8 distinct Skills and Principles that are covered with the usage of interactive exercises, didactic material and videos to increase the retention of the learning.

Who Needs This Training?
