Presented by Steve Siegel
Do you ever hold your opinion inside and then one day, when you can't take it any longer, speak your mindundefinedbut by then you're so upset that it comes out all wrong?
Do you find yourself getting so caught up in an argument you forget what you really want and just start trying to win? Or do you work with people who do that?
Were you aware that 195,000 people die every year in hospitals because a healthcare worker made a mistakeundefinedand often one of their coworkers saw the problem but didn't dare speak up?
In this Crucial Conversations overview, you will learn a little about how to deal with high-stakes conversations (where opinions vary and emotions run strong) using the skills of the world's best communicators.
