I am delivering a workshop on conversation at Ark Group’s KM Australia on 2 August this year. Here’s what it’s about:
The Innovation Conversation: All of us are smarter than any of us
Research has shown that conversation is important for improving innovation and collaboration. It has also been found that conversation improves group and individual performance, intelligence and knowledge sharing. This practical workshop will address some of the principles of innovation and how conversational techniques can be harnessed to improve business outcomes. You will also practice effective conversational techniques.
Come to this interactive workshop to learn about:
- The five rules for more innovative conversations
