Event Description

Agri-food Management Institute offers course to strengthen communication skills among agribusiness owners and managers

Techniques to manage family-run businesses and build stakeholder relations key focus of program

The Agri-food Management Institute (AMI) will offer an interactive communications workshop in early 2015 for agricultural producers and food and beverage processors.

Challenge the Conversation 2.0 is a two-day course designed specifically to help agribusiness managers, particularly those who operate family businesses, become better bosses, business partners, spouses and parents.

"Agribusiness owners spend 60-80 per cent of their time in conversation with stakeholders," said AMI’s Executive Director Ryan Koeslag." Challenge the Conversation 2.0 will help agribusiness owners better manage relationships by having more productive interactions with employees, business partners, advisors, customers, and family members who have a role to play in the business."

The workshop is ideal for those who tend to avoid difficult conversations, spend a lot of time fixing misunderstandings, want to better deal with performance issues, motivate employees, and work in better partnership with employees and family members.

After completing Challenge the Conversation 2.0., agribusiness owners will understand the impact of conversation on performance and profitability, recognize their default communication style and know how to adapt to different situations, communicate clearly to reduce misunderstandings, and have strategies to deal with difficult and emotionally charged situations.

The course is offered in partnership with Juice Inc., and starts on January 27, 2015 at the Delta Hotel in Guelph. Part two of the course will be held February 24, 2015 at the same location. The cost of the course is $120.
