  • Prepare for high-impact situations with a six-minute mastery technique
  • Make it safe to talk about almost anything
  • Be persuasive, not abrasive
  • Keep listening when others blow up or clam up
  • Turn crucial conversations into the action and results you want

The cost for Crucial Conversations is $250 to cover materials for the course. The course is scheduled on two consecutive days (8 a.m. – 5 p.m. with a one-hour break for lunch) and are held on the Boise State main campus. After completing registration, you will receive additional details about your specific session, to include location.
