Transformative Conversations:  The heart of the leadership journey

Do people issues keep you awake at night? Do you spend valuable time fixing misunderstandings? Do you want to make a bigger difference and have more influence? The quality of the conversations you facilitate shapes the quality of your interpersonal relationships, and ultimately, the organizational culture. It all happens through conversation. Conversations are at the core of what leaders do. You can read my white paper Leading Through Conversations: The Future of Leadership to learn why Conversations are so important at present. Below are some of the ways in which you can further develop your leadership skills through dialogue.
