What is a good conversation?
How do you bring up what is really important?
How does the conversation lead managers and employees to understand each other? How does the dialogue between manager and employee get started about the things that really matter? And how do you come and stay in conversation? How do you come to clear agreements? In short: how do you turn a conversation into a meaningful meeting that contributes to better cooperation and performance?
More than skill tricks
Having a real conversation requires more than knowledge and skills.
A really good conversation for positive change in organizations requires authentic behavior, leadership and conversation skills that inspire confidence.
It requires an open listening attitude, appealing to talent, building a relationship of trust, a sharp problem analysis and an appropriate solution strategy for developing competencies. You will get to work on this in the workshop "the real conversation".
Attune uses approaches and insights from positive psychology, appreciative inquiry, approaches that put the relationship first such as Conversational Intelligence®, ORSC® and Focusing, experiential learning and servant leadership. Attune has expressed these insights in the Fundamentals of Attune.
