Mastering Conversations – the key ingredient to leadership, development & value add partnering
Joan Egenes and Sara Hope will explore how mastering conversation is the key ingredient to leadership and development. If businesses want to attract the best people and retain them through genuine, magnetic engagement, we need to be changing the experience of how we have conversations.
This session will share and build on the findings from recent research co-authored by Sara, which won first prize in last year’s Roffey Park/HR Magazine research competition. The judges said “the topic is a key issue being faced by organisations globally, and provides fresh thinking on how to approach it.”
Combining the findings from the research together with a case study from KPMG, it will look at practical ways to start changing the workplace conversation to more deeply engage people and drive business performance. Exploring:
• Why the workplace conversation needs to change
• How organisations are starting to create environments where more skilful conversations can happen
• The impact of being a skilful conversationalist on business performance
• How internal coaching & mentoring initiatives are being used to strengthen conversational muscle
The 2nd part of the afternoon will be facilitated by Nigel Paine and focus on an agenda defined and driven by you the membership following the conversations in the 1st part of the meeting. We will be looking at sharing knowledge and expertise.
