Managers who want to open up the conversation in their unit and who are ready to involve their employees in problem solving.

About My Business:

 

I work with organizations to create conversations where knowledge transfer/sharing happens, where knowledge is created, where innovation arises. I believe trust is the bridge on which knowledge travels between people so I focus on ways to create trust and a safe space for conversation, whether online or face-to-face. I help groups in organizations have more productive conversations to address on-going problems or to more effectively share their knowledge, whether those conversations are in a team meeting, a conference setting or the retrospect of a project. The key is not a better meeting agenda, it is in creating an environment where members feel safe to offer ideas or lay out concerns. Trust is the bridge across which knowledge flows and I design gatherings where trust is prevalent. If you are planning a meeting in which you want the organization dialogue to provide new answers, then you need more than a facilitator. You need a conversation Architect, that is someone who can strategically design the format, space, time, and environment to achieve the results you want. • How to design the space • How to configure the size of groups • How to frame the issue so it is open for new ideas • How to build a culture of trust • How to harvest what is learned or created
