About The Four Conversations Effectiveness Training Course

Success in work and life requires the ability to get results through others.  Whether it is your boss, a colleague, your spouse, your children, or a neighbor, your ability to produce results with them impacts the quality of your life.  The primary tool you have for accomplishing these results is conversation.  Yet, as you have no doubt noticed, our conversations don’t always get us the results we want, expect, or hoped for.  This course can change that:

“The Four Conversations has had a tremendous impact on the culture of COSI. Our leadership and management groups have incorporated the principles of the book into daily practice. We have taken the core elements of conversations and written them into internal meeting policy. The Four Conversations helps us to structure our conversations, our requests, our commitments, and our acknowledgments so that communication is more efficient and our meetings are more productive. I think it improves our accountability to each other, and I recommend the approach for any organization or team.”

Andy Aichele, Director of Human Capital Development, COSI

After years of working with executives, managers, project managers, master black belts, and employees at all levels from Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, hospitals, and not-for-profit organizations, both in the classroom and at their places of employment, we have distilled the critical elements for producing results to four conversations in our award winning book, The Four Conversations: Daily Communication that Get Results. 

Previously available only to our MBA and executive education students at Ohio State and to our clients, we are now making the same training available to you through the eight session online course – The Four Conversations Online Effectiveness Training, but for only a fraction of the cost.  In this course, you will learn such things as:

  • your personal communication practices and how to improve the ones you want to improve
  • which types of conversations actually slow things down and undermine effective working relations
  • how the four productive conversations work and when to use them to get the results you want and need from others
  • how to overcome barriers to your personal success and accomplishment such as others submitting things late, giving you poor quality work, or being uncooperative
  • that how you talk matters and that you can be more successful and effective by making a few changes in your current pattern of communication

Our students and clients report that their use of The Four Conversations has a significant positive impact on their communications and effectiveness with others, leading to greater confidence, satisfaction, and success at both work and home.  In fact, we have had numerous managers who have taken our training for work tell us it was also very beneficial in their personal lives.

The Four Conversations Effectiveness Training Course includes videos of actual training sessions along with exercises that strengthen your understanding and use of The Four Conversations.  The Course is divided into eight sessions:

Session 1: Introduction to The Four Conversations
Session 2: Barriers to Success and Accomplishment
Session 3: Some Conversations Slow Things Down
Session 4: Initiative Conversations: Launch Something New
Session 5: Understanding Conversations: Involve and Engage People
