Collaborative working is usually approached by having well-formed agendas and structural solutions; yet this only addresses the process structure for conversation and not the invisible elements required.
Conversations where the content overpowers the people having the conversations do not produce outstanding results.
The Mind at Work’s collaborative conversation is built upon deep listening and speaking with purpose, honest straight-talk and a commitment to outputs that everyone can own. This is opposed to the norm of drifting, circular discussions, where protective communications rule.
We facilitate and teach how to have conversations that create permission fields and transcend power structures to foster engagement, innovation, partnership, problem-solving, empowerment and remarkable results.
