Why do 9 out of 10 conversations fail to “hit the mark”?
Most of us have grown up believing that conversations are about expressing thoughts, observations and opinions. Conversations are so often used to “persuade” or “get others to think the way I think.” And that’s because 95% of what we call conversations are actually “telling” statements. “Asking” statements are rare, as is quality listening.
When conversations are ‘healthy’ and ‘robust’ they provide us with the tools for talking about what we think and feel and enable us to close the gap between your reality and mine. Truly understanding how others view the world is paramount in creating high trust cultures.
When we exercise our Conversational Intelligence® we are much more likely to develop strong meaningful relationships that achieve personal, team and organizational goals.
This Introduction to Conversational Intelligence® Coaching program will provide you with the tools you can use to communicate in ways that create a shared concept of reality, which in turn create high trust relationships, work environments and cultures where innovation, experimentation, collaboration and high accountability are the norm.
Conversational Intelligence can be cultivated in individuals, teams and organizations.
Who It Is For?
An Introduction to Conversational Intelligence® is for you if:
- You are tired of your conversations becoming defensive “my way or the highway” exchanges
- You approach ‘difficult conversations’ with fear and dread or perhaps you avoid them altogether
- You often find yourself getting stuck in “needing to be right” and repeatedly knocking heads with others who also are addicted to being right?
- You often are too emotional to really communicate and connect?
- You find that others seem to have a hard time listening to you?
