We Need to Talk: Crucial Conversations

TU Director at Large Rachel Wiley shares her approach to engaging students in meaningful dialogue, even when there's the potential for conflict -- "In my classroom, we talk about conflict as the most significant part of telling an effective story. [...] Alternatively, in life, we often avoid conflict at all costs. We hide our true feelings, we speak around issues, we end up venting to other people instead of bringing it to the attention of the person with whom we have the problem."
