I agree with the positive reinforcement. Our vet mentioned the Good Bird training series (http://www.goodbirdinc.com/parrot-store.html). I have to say we just read about it, because we never had huge problems with Keegan. But whenever he is good, we tell him "good boy" and he's learned to say it back. He's at the window right now, in fact, telling the world he is a "good boy."
Also, how old is your conure? We did have a "terrible twos" phase where he would bite guests. Luckily that's over, but maybe it's a contributing factor for you?
