Our Team

 A thought

Why are we interested in the skills of 'conversational leadership?'  Older leadership paradigms suggest that we can influence our customers, and our people, by documentation, and by decree.  This narrow view perhaps suit topics that are clear-cut - but not more ambiguous or contentious topics.  In a turbulent business environment, we need to lead by conversation or dialogue - i.e. rely more on informal communication, that is "open" and gives more scope for groups to discuss and generate ideas.
