VitalSmarts is now Crucial Learning

With redesigned courses and a bold new brand, the timeless skills we teach are now more inclusive, flexible, and accessible.

The Why Behind the Words

Crucial Learning communicates two powerful ideas that embody our mission and focus.

First, Crucial

We teach essential skills for life’s crucial moments. Our curated set of skills help you better handle challenging moments in life and work. They have a disproportionate impact on the outcomes you care about most, including the strength of your relationships, your career satisfaction, your happiness, and your ability to manage stress.

Next, Learning

We help you become a better version of yourself—one skill at a time.

Learning doesn’t start in the classroom and end with a degree. It’s a journey. From infancy through old age, we learn by doing, failing, and observing. It is through learning that we achieve dreams, accomplish goals, and succeed.

Inclusive. Flexible. Accessible.

We offer learning experiences for everyone. You’ll find relevant topics and flexible learning formats to suit your learning style.

Whether you’re looking to lead your organization to new heights or improve your relationships, our courses can help.

Meet the New
Crucial Conversations

We’ve also expanded and updated the Crucial Conversations family of courses. It now includes two new courses: One focused on dialogue and one focused on accountability.
