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 organisation can take action on.
Delegates will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
What’s In A Word?
To begin the course, participants will review their pre-assignment and consider what conversational leadership is all about.
This session explores some key concepts, including designing meaningful conversations and personal skill-building.
The Four-I Model of Organisational Conversation
Next, participants will learn about the Four-I model: intimacy, interactivity, inclusion, and intentionality. Common language and trust will also be discussed.
The Conversational Leadership Framework
In this session, participants will learn about the conversational leadership framework developed by Hurley and Brown. The role of appreciative inquiry in conversational leadership will also be discussed.
The course wraps up with an in-depth look at the structure of a World Café.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
