Courageous Conversations

The concepts proposed for this workshop are a rigorous, skill-based approach to developing interpersonal competence.  It is a set of competencies for reasoning and action, which can be mastered by individuals and teams.

The session is designed for participants to grapple with real organizational problems as they learn the dynamic concepts and skills of effective coaching.  As they deal with these issues they explore the assumptions embedded in their view of the problem, and how these assumptions often drive their thinking and behavior.  By learning to actively surface and test their thinking and the logic inherent in their views, participants can greatly enhance their organizational and professional effectiveness, and effectively tackle problems that would otherwise go unaddressed or unsolved.

Participants will increase their ability to:

  • Identify organizational, team, and interpersonal situations that they find most problematic and recognize why their best efforts to deal with these situations are often ineffective.
  •  Develop skills for having responsibly robust conversations with people in higher positions of authority so that critical bottom-up communication remains open and productive.
  • Foster conditions that will enable people to act with high levels of candor, respect, and responsibility as they engage difficult, complex issues.
  • Significantly reduce destructive finger pointing and blaming when dealing with tough problems and issues, and keep people focused on the relevant issues.
  • Apply new action models for advocacy and inquiry to real business issues.
