Duration: 00:51:37

Presenter: Joseph Grenny & David Maxfield


How to recover from one-sentence career killers & create a culture of dialogue.

Have you ever thought it was safe to speak up in a meeting, but it wasn’t? Have you ever made a comment on Facebook that came back to bite you at the office? Have you ever tried to ask for help only to earn a reputation as a complainer?

According to a new study by VitalSmarts, nearly every employee has either seen or suffered from a catastrophic conversation. Specifically, 83 percent have witnessed their colleagues say something that had catastrophic results on their careers, reputations and businesses. And 69 percent admit to personally committing a catastrophic comment.

Join bestselling authors Joseph Grenny and David Maxfield for this 40 to 45 minute presentation as they reveal the top five most catastrophic workplace comments and how to recover should you ever make one. They’ll also talk about how to create the kind of culture that does not punish candor, but rather makes it safe to engage in honest dialogue. You’ll learn:

  • The top 5 most catastrophic comments you can make at work
  • How to recover when you put your foot in your mouth
  • How to make it safe for people to engage in candid dialogue
  • How to build the kind of workplace where anyone can speak up honestly and respectfully to anyone else—no matter power, position, or authority
