Crucial Conversations Workshop at the CFB State Office

Feb. 20 & 21 Crucial Conversations Workshop at the CFB State Office.  Registration deadline is Feb 10th.

As you attended one of the December County Farm Bureau Leadership Mini Trainings and thought “this would be helpful to me/my family”, now is a good time to consider taking two days to attend this class.  I know now is a busy time for each of you.  The question is “when isn’t a busy time”?
While we have talked a lot about the value of the Crucial Conversations skills when transferring management and assets to the next generations, you will also find these skills valuable in a variety of other ways.  For instance:
  • Leadership Development: As you develop your leadership abilities at the local, state, and/or national levels, the skills you learn through the Crucial Conversations training will be an asset.  These skills will help you engage others around you so the best decisions can be made and you can get the results you desire as a leader.
  • Board Meetings:  Have you found yourself talking time and time again about how board meetings function or don’t function?  What if there is a way to address the issue that has you concerned AND you could do it in a respectful way that does not offend others?  Utilizing Crucial Conversations skills, you can help boards and organizations be much more productive.
  • Family:  Have you ever found yourself in one of those downward spirals that Joseph talked about in the video where one bad decision and/or statement turns an everyday event or discussion into a crucial conversation?  Crucial Conversation skills can help you backtrack to where things went wrong, understand why they went wrong, and take action to correct the problem so you can get back to a positive discussion with beneficial results.
CFB is pleased to offer this course at a greatly discounted rate of $600 per person or $500 per person for two or more from the same family or operation.  You already have all the technical skills needed to run your operation.  I encourage you to take the time to develop these “soft” skills that will benefit you, your operation, and future generations in many ways into the future.  Please give me a call with any questions you have.
