Ensuring good communication across generations matters whether you’re buying, selling, leasing, or expanding a farm business. Being able to articulate your vision can be challenging. This workshop will answer the question, "What types of skills does a farmer need to describe their farm vision in a clear, compelling way, no matter who they are interacting with?"

Learning Objectives:
-Gain a better understanding of farmer typology & learning stages
-Learn about typical characteristics of generations and their preferred communication styles. -
-Practice effective communication with a partner using "I" statements, the ladder of inference, and active listening skills.
