Course Overview

Effective leaders understand how powerful an opportunity can be when they can tap into the intelligence, wisdom, and innovation present in their workforce. Conversational leadership provides the space and infrastructure for knowledge sharing to take place; for employees, stakeholders, and the community to be involved in discussing big, important questions; and to generate solutions that people within the organization can take action on.

Learning Objectives

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants:

  • About the wisdom inherent in encouraging conversational leadership
  • How to describe the four I’s of conversational leadership
  • How to apply the principles of conversational leadership to improve results
  • How to organize a simple World Café as an example of conversational leadership
