 Navigating Conflict & Tough Conversations in Agriculture

Stressful times in agriculture can trigger difficult conversations that many of us dread – whether we’re delivering bad news, are on the receiving end of it, or are helping farmers or farm families make sense of it all.  Fortunately, these situations don’t have to be uncomfortable or unproductive. 

In this series of five engaging 30-minute sessions, you’ll learn tips and strategies for having constructive interactions that can lead to better outcomes for everyone involved. You will also learn precautions to keep yourself safe in highly charged situations. These online sessions are an adaptation of a three-hour workshop we offered in 2019 . Whether the content is new to you or you simply want a refresher, we hope you’ll participate and share the opportunity with colleagues.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Lenders, mediators, farm advocates, agency staff, Farm Business Management and Extension educators, agricultural advisors and business people, farmers, veterinarians, clergy, social service providers, and anyone else who interacts with farmers or agriculture.

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an eXtension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them. 

How do I know if it is an eXtension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the eXtension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top. 

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.
