My primary focus is employee engagement.
Crucial Conversations can improve employee engagement. When employees feel safe because of mutual respect and mutual purpose they are more likely to engage in work.
I have been fortunate over the past year to teach numerous Crucial Conversations courses.
Crucial Conversations is a great approach to getting results and building relationships when the stakes are high, there are differing opinions, and there are strong emotions.
The method is not designed specifically for employee engagement but I have seen what a strong tool it can be to reach out to disengaged workers and to work with conflicts that may begin to sow the seeds of disengagement if they are not dealt with candidly and respectfully.
There are many tools to work with employee engagement and I believe Crucial Conversations is an exquisite tool in the tool-belt of managers and leaders who foster high levels of employee engagement while getting results and building relationships.
Here are 4 actions you can take right now to improve your results and relationships:
- Read the book: Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When the Stakes Are High.
- Visit the Vitalsmarts website to learn more about Crucial Conversations and the newest book, The Influencer.
- Subscribe to the Crucial Skills newsletter. This is one of my top 5 newsletters – I always look forward to it appearing in my inbox.
- Enroll in a Crucial Conversations workshop to really develop your skills.
