Fierce Conversations training teaches people how to have vital conversations that interrogate reality, provoke learning, resolve tough challenges and enrich relationships. While no single conversation is guaranteed to change the trajectory of a career, a congregation, a relationship, or a life … any single conversation can. These workshops will provide sixteen hours of experiential training about how to have more productive conversations. The skills learned will be immediately applicable to one’s personal and professional life. As accredited providers for Fierce, Inc. in the Episcopal Church, Courtney Reid, director of operations, and the Nicholas Center for the Diocese of Chicago, have provided many Fierce trainings in a variety of church and diocesan contexts.
