Conversations That Matter

A Self-Guided Training To Strengthen Your Ability To Speak Courageously

Conversations That Matter is a self-guided training program developed by Rockwood co-founder Robert Gass, and specifically designed to help you enhance your skills around conversations that are important in advancing organizational and personal goals, necessary in building and maintaining close relationships and intimacy, and may feel risky or uncomfortable, causing you to procrastinate, nervously rehearse, or totally avoid.

Through this course, you’ll practice and hone your skills, including: dealing directly with conflicts, confronting others about performance issues, dealing with interpersonal issues or misbehavior by colleagues, advocating for your own needs, setting limits and boundaries, conversations around race, gender, and equity.

Each day, you’ll receive e-mails with new practices and learn how to integrate them into your daily life.

This program includes:

  • DAILY EMAIL PRACTICES: 28 different practices, emailed to you daily, that will develop your capacity to have courageous conversations
  • SELF-ASSESSMENT: Pre- and post-training self-assessment to track your growth
  • TEXT REMINDERS: 2 daily text reminders to help you integrate practices into your daily activities
  • VIDEOS FROM ROBERT: Brief, weekly videos to deepen and support your training experience
  • LEARNING PARTNERS: Take the journey with an optional learning partner and enhance your practice with weekly 20 minute phone calls
  • PLUS: A 60-minute webinar Rockwood Co-Founder Robert Gass

Rockwood is committed to supporting leaders facing disproportionate and compounded devastation in this pandemic—specifically Black, Indigenous, Latinx, API/A, low-income, undocumented, disabled, LGBQTI+, and rural-based communities—so they can tap into their full power and resilience.
