Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Event Image "Cities for Sale" Lecture by Emily Mackil
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

"Cities for Sale: Communal Patrimony and the Limits of Alienability in the Ancient Greek World" is presented by Emily Mackil of University of California, Berkeley. This event is sponsored by GCAH, CWCTP and the Department of Classics.

The phenomenon of public property in the Greek world is confronted from an oblique angle, examining a series of cases in which entire cities, with their inhabitants, were sold for cash, like commodities changing hands in a market change. The stories of these transactions are told so as to tease out what we know about the motives for the purchase, the fate of the population and what powers accrued to the new owner of a city. Finally, the moral opprobrium evoked by the sale of Greek cities, figured as the alienation of communal patrimony, is treated in order to explore the limits of alienability in Greek thought and the distinctive set of rules and norms that seem to have been attached to public property.

Event Image Bess Krietemeyer | Hybrid-Reality Design: Bioresponsiveness in the Built Environment
5:47 PM - 7:00 PM

Bess Krietemeyer is an architectural designer and researcher whose expertise lies at the intersection of advanced building technologies, interactive systems, and building performance simulation. She leads the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab at the Syracuse Center of Excellence, where her research focuses on hybrid-reality simulations for interactive design and energy analysis.

 

The human body’s perception of ambient energy flows in the built environment is a complex yet important consideration in designing high performance architectural systems, buildings and cities. Bess Krietemeyer explores how hybrid-reality platforms for experiencing bioclimatic flows in architectural design are empowering designers and end users to engage in collaborative design processes from diverse viewpoints and across spatial scales.
