A two-day programme for leaders, coaches and change agents who want to lead powerful conversations. If you want to catalyse sustainable change by uplifting people and performance, this leading-edge programme is for you.

Creating Change through Dialogue is a skill-building programme that provides practical tools, enabling you to lead powerful conversations that create positive change - for you, your team and organisation. This programme is based on the book How to Have Meaningful Conversations by Sarah Rozenthuler (Watkins, 2019.)

Included in the programme, is a two-hour group follow-up session (three months later) to embed your learning in your day-to-day work.

Benefits

Research shows that better dialogue delivers measurable benefits, including improved team performance, more satisfied customers and higher profitability. There is an art and science – to holding powerful meetings where people do their best thinking and commit to aligned action.

Participating in this programme enables you to:

  • Lead conversations that mobilise people’s energy for action
  • Intervene skillfully in teams, groups and systems so that new thinking emerges
  • Co-create change by listening to each individual and the wisdom of the whole room

Approach

The programme consists of a unique and energizing weave of experiential exercises, personal reflection, research inputs and whole group dialogue.

Instead of the typical role play approach we draw on a rich diversity of fields including applied psychology, organisational dialogue, and systemic constellations. Prior to the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to identify a current leadership challenge to explore and move forward.

What will you learn?

Participating in this programme will enable you to shift from talking nice, talking tough or not talking at all. Instead, you’ll be able to lead conversations that draw on the intelligence of people around you to improve decisions, innovation, and productivity by:

  • Creating the conditions for authentic dialogue that accesses collective intelligence
  • Showing up more powerfully as who you really are by displaying new behaviours
  • Making change happen by intervening in systems, teams and groups with new skills
