ISU Extension and Outreach Professional Development invites those who have completed the full Crucial Conversations (CC) workshop to attend our new “Crucial Conversations Refresher Series.” Neuroscience and learning transfer theory tells us that consistently practicing (new) skills is the biggest predictor to successfully integrating learning into your everyday environment. The Refresher Series will provide a highly engaging environment in which to share ideas and discuss experiences related to the skills and strategies learned in the original CC workshop.
