Conversation Journey

There is a growing awareness of how important conversations are within our organisations. Dialogue has always been key, but the new economy requires a new way of facilitating business conversations.
When it comes to facing the adaptive challenges in our organisation, conversation is a very useful tool for leadership to engage with staff on addressing problems.

A Conversation Journey is an intentional, facilitated approach that helps an organisation understand their existing conversation culture and assists in creating a culture that supports the organisations strategic objectives.

“Conversations are the way workers discover what they know, share it with their colleagues, and in the process create new knowledge for the organisation. 
In the new economy, conversations are the most important form of work … so much so that the conversation is the organisation.”
Alan Webber –  Harvard Business Review

 

There are typically 4 main types of conversation that occur in organisations.  When one type (usually Action conversations) dominates the conversation landscape to the detriment of the other types of conversation it creates an unhealthy culture in the organisation.
