Career Webinar: Fierce Conversations


Fierce Conversations: Transforming Your Results through Candor and Collaboration

Based on Susan Scott's national best seller, Fierce Conversations is an award-winning methodology used by organizations worldwide. Fierce skills transform the conversations central to your individual and collective success. What gets talked about and how it gets talked about determines what will or won't happen in your work, relationships, and life. Learn what it takes to improve the quality and effectiveness of your relationships and results long-term.

Join us to get a taste of Fierce Conversations with an overview of effective, immediately actionable models which structure high levels of engagement, collaboration, and deep-seated accountability from all stakeholders. Gain ideas and models that will shift your basic understanding of conversations and the power they hold in leadership, achieving results, and building collective responsibility.

Your webinar presenters are:

Janet Irving - Janet has worked with Fierce in the Schools for two years as director of education partnerships. Previously, she worked at Committee for Children, a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to developing social and emotional curricula for ages preschool through grade eight, as well as anti-bullying programs. She helped districts with implementation and sustainability strategies – similar to what she does at Fierce in the Schools.

Janet attended Washington State University as well as the University of Washington, studying education. She taught in the Seattle area for several years starting out in early childhood, and eventually “graduated” into elementary schools to work with non-proficient readers and writers. Teaching has always been a part of her core.

Deli Moussavi-Bock - Deli comes to Fierce with over 13 years of corporate experience in marketing, branding, and business development. Prior to joining Fierce, Deli spent seven years at RealNetworks—at the time a pioneer developing the streaming media market—fulfilling key roles in strategic marketing, branding, and business development both domestically and internationally.

In 2002, Deli helped launch Fierce, Inc. with Susan Scott following the publication of Susan’s national best seller, “Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and at Home, One Conversation at a Time.”

Having successfully run Fierce, Inc.’s marketing, business development, and client relations during the company’s early and critical stages of growth, Deli’s passion for education and communication has led her to dedicate a large portion of her time developing a division within Fierce, Inc.: Fierce in the Schools. Fierce now works globally with schools, equipping administrators, school leaders, staff, teachers, parents, and students with the skills to transform the conversations, and therefore the relationships and measurable results, central to their success.

Deli is a Fierce Facilitator and conducts keynotes, Fierce Conversations Workshops and Train-the-Trainer sessions for corporate, education, and nonprofit audiences.

Deli graduated from Cornell University with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature. She enjoys writing and spending time with her family outdoors. Raised in a cross-cultural family of educators and entrepreneurs, she is passionate about building community as a powerful means to drive results.
