Pilot Program Being Offered in July – Conversations Worth Having Bootcamp 2: How to Have Strategic Conversations at Work
“The bootcamp of the future is one that teaches your people how to have conversations!” – Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn
Are you tired of conversations that focus on what’s wrong, without producing actionable results? Do you want to create meaningful, respectful engagement in your organization that builds connection, fuels productivity and generates positive change?
We are almost always engaged in either internal dialogue or external interactions at work. You may not realize how much influence conversations have on the well-being of your team or organization. How often are those conversations worth having? What if you could learn to fuel meaningful engagements while energizing people to solve problems? Conversations Worth Having bootcamps do this through Appreciative Inquiry (AI), which teaches ways to find the best in people, organizations and communities by inquiring into strengths, possibilities and successes.
Research shows the need for upwards of three positive interactions to every one negative one. Most teams function at a 1:1 ratio of positive to negative. Working towards a higher positivity ratio creates more engagement.
The practices you will learn are from AI, one of the most widely used approaches to fostering positive change in organizations. You will hear stories from different work environments and learn about the research behind this work. This research shows that positivity gives people access to higher order thinking, creativity, engagement, self-motivation and relational capacity. You will learn to use evidence-based practices, principles and tools to shift the dynamics of workplace conversations from reactionary to deliberate communication, to ask generative questions, to flip conversations to the positive opposite, and to give effective feedback.
The focus of these sessions is on how to have productive conversations while strengthening relationships and generating possibilities for a future that helps everyone succeed. It provides an opportunity to give your employees the tools to be able to communicate more productively and positively. Research shows that creating a climate of positivity and openness supports engagement, performance, employee and customer satisfaction, retention and trust. The bootcamps are developed by the authors of “Conversations Worth Having: Using Appreciative Inquiry to Fuel Productive and Meaningful Engagement” – Jackie Stavros and Cheri Torres.
