Online – Better Conversations Every Day

June 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The culture of your organization is more powerful than your strategy and more persistent than your vision. It’s the environment that enables performance or undermines it. Better Conversations Every Day™ (BCE) starts with a simple — yet transformative — premise: that better culture starts with better conversations. No matter the size of your organization, BCE helps drive business outcomes and create lasting change.

Uniquely created for everyone and every single conversation — from the front desk to the corner office — this 9-hour, three-session program equips leaders with the tools to break down communication barriers and bring your business strategy to life.

Session Objectives

Working in virtual groups of four, each led by an experienced, certified coach, you’ll engage in in-depth discussion and practice to:

  • Understand the four core behaviors needed for better conversations: listen to understand, ask powerful questions, challenge & support, and establish next steps and accountability
  • Effectively lead in a virtual environment
  • Act with greater agility and resilience and address issues with openness and respect
  • Transform performance management with every day conversations that matter
  • Break down silos and communication barriers

Who Should Attend

All leaders of organizations who can benefit from creating and enabling a culture of growth and engagement within their teams and cross functionally across the business. Leaders at all levels of an organization will benefit from better communication.

This program is offered in a partnership between UWM’s Lubar School of Business Executive Programs and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), a top-ranked, global, nonprofit provider of leadership development that has worked with more than two-thirds of the world’s Fortune 500 companies. CCL developed the Better Conversations platform. Mike Markiewicz, Director of Executive Programs, will facilitate the program. Mike has 20 years of corporate leadership development experience.
