CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Registration is now open for the two-day leadership training program "Fierce Conversations®" hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Executive Development Center. The workshop is 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Nov. 29, in the Business and Community Services Building on the UNI campus. The registration deadline is Nov. 22.

What gets talked about in an organization and how it gets talked about determines what will — or what won't — happen. Fierce Conversations® teaches attendees how to ignite productive dialogue that interrogates reality, provokes learning, resolves tough challenges and enriches relationships. Based on the principles of Susan Scott's best-seller, Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work & in Life, One Conversation at a Time, this foundational, hands-on workshop will introduce participants to transformational ideas and principles that will shift their basic understanding of conversations and the power they hold in leadership, relationships and results.

The cost of the training program is $699, which includes two-days of instruction, program materials, lunch, refreshments and parking.
