Enroll in Crucial Accountability
“I wish I could send all my employees to this class.” Those are the words of Sherry Adams of Stony Creek Landscapes, Webster City, after she completed Crucial Conversations sponsored by Power Up YOUth and ISU Hamilton County Extension.
Because talking about problems is important in families and business, this partnership has been struck again, this time bringing Crucial Accountability to area employers and parents. The class teaches the concepts from Crucial Conversation and adds skills for holding people accountable. The two-day course, based on 25 years of research, teaches a process for identifying and resolving problems, strengthening accountability, and reducing resentment.
Crucial Accountability Training on April 9th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Hamilton County Extension at 311 Bank Street, Webster City, IA and on April 23rd at All Cultures Equal at 1440 E Second St., Webster City, IA teaches participants how to:
Hold anyone accountable – no matter the person’s power, position or temperament
Get positive results and maintain a good relationship when discussing performance
Motivate others without using power
Manage projects without taking over
Agree on a plan, follow up, engage in good reporting practices, and manage new expectations
Enroll early for a reduced cost of $195. The first 10 Hamilton County residents are subsidized by ISU Hamilton Extension and Outreach sponsorship. Print the registration form and then mail that form and your check to the Power Up YOUth. The address is on the registration form.
Power Up YOUth offers a $50 scholarship to parents of K-12 students too. On the registration form, identify the school where your child attends to receive a scholarship.
Hamilton County residents who sign up after the first 10 participants will pay the full cost. People who reside outside Hamilton County may take the class as well, but are not eligible for the above discounts. The good news, however, is that Shirley Poertner, of the Poertner Consulting Group, which offers this effective training, has reduced its cost to us from the original $1,195 to $695.
Think of the benefits this class can bring to you, your family, and your place of business. This is opportunity knocking on your door!
