“Effective teamwork begins and ends with communication. Communication does not always occur naturally, even among a tight-knit group of individuals. Communication must be taught and practiced in order to bring everyone together as one.“ Coach K. - Men’s Basketball Coach at Duke University
Using material from the world of improvisation and Annette Simmons’ work on dialogue, this session promises to be one of the most productive team meetings ever experienced. The first part of the class is spent learning what dialogue is and what typically blocks authentic conversation. Once those escape strategies are called out, and the team has a chance to identify how members would prefer to engage, and the team puts the new learning to practice with a two hour dialogue session. Upon completion of the group conversation, the team forms an action plan to move forward with true collaboration and effectiveness.
“Dialogue is different from normal conversation, and there are specific skills that, when everyone does them together, dramatically change the way you communicate as a group.” A Safe Place for Dangerous Truths by Annette Simmons
