Our ability to influence people and events starts with the level of credibility we have.

This conference will involve highly experiential exercises, including work with horses, cattle, and peers that will deliver lessons about connection and communication in a unique and powerful way. No prior riding experience is necessary.

Realizing organizational impact is an important tenant of CII, so tuition includes a credit for a Conversant consultant to facilitate a session with the participant and their team (or other equivalent organization engagement), making the program’s lessons even more practical, actionable, and impactful within the context of their day-to-day work.

Peer Group Coaching

Guided by a Conversant coach, participants form small teams during the Credibility conference that will regularly meet virtually through the rest of the program. In these smaller communities, participants build trust and strong connections while deepening their understanding of the principles and supporting the integration of new skills and behaviors in their day-to-day lives.

1:1 Executive Coaching

Participants will regularly meet with their Conversant coach for one-on-one sessions throughout the program. Partnership with an individual coach gives added support in applying learnings to the immediate and practical challenges they face as leaders. Coaching will help sharpen their focus on the essential and unique contributions they have to make in their organization while becoming more reliable for showing up as a Connected Leader.

Consultant Engagement

As participants evolve their leadership, they will have the opportunity to bring their Conversant coach into their team and/or organization for a virtual session. This engagement credit allows for a more direct application of program principles to the leader’s organizational context and supports participants in causing a meaningful and enduring impact. This credit can also be applied towards a more extensive engagement with the organization. Timing and session design will be determined by the participant and their coach.
