How to discuss the 'undiscussables'

Relationships are the lifeblood of effective leaders and teamwork, team members continuously interact with one another through conversation. Their conversational proficiency determines how well the strategies, plans, policies, systems and processes are implemented to achieve the desired results. What is and isn’t said in conversations, how it is said and how it is listened to, and what is happening to team members emotionally, are crucial for how efficiently and effectively leaders and teams perform.

The quality of the conversational networks is a major determinant of morale, performance and productivity. Conversations which do not generate new insights, innovative practices, effective actions and positive results are unproductive; they create and perpetuate costly communication breakdowns and waste.

In this session attendees will gain insight into:
 • Improving the quality of information flow to solve problems more effectively
 • Increasing levels of collaboration to make more informed decisions and take wiser action
 • Build greater trust, commitment and more effective working relationships
 • Learn how to agreeably disagree
 • Build greater confidence and capacity to say what needs to be said
 • Reduce stress and increase levels of wellbeing.
