Success occurs through conversations.

In the business world, success occurs through conversations. Conversational Intelligence was identified as one of the top 5 business trends of 2016, and continues to inform development efforts at some of the biggest companies in the world today.

Additionally, our conversations shape our brains and the way we interpret reality.

Choices we make in language and behavior influence our neurochemistry as well as our emotions. We have more influence over ourselves and others than we realize.

But, there are predictable reasons why successful conversations break down. With awareness of what goes wrong and through learning new skills, we can improve the quality of conversations both for ourselves and for our teams.

You'll learn:

  • The relationships between conversational practices, inclusion and diversity, and the development of connection, innovation, and creativity
  • The hidden and visible elements of successful conversations, as well as how and why conversations break down
  • Advanced conversational practices, such as improving the quality of questions asked and reducing the impact of individual blind spots
