Speak-up and start a conversation

Team conversations

The effectiveness of a team depends on the quality of its conversations. Team conversations often follow fixed, intuitive patterns, regardless of the purpose of the conversation. If the purpose is different than usual, the conversation can easily derail.

Also, the emotional climate within a team – perceptions of openness and trust, recognition and appreciation among others – affects the quality of conversations, and vice versa.

We help teams become more effective by:

  • creating awareness of existing patterns in conversations and their impact on effectiveness and team cohesion
  • offering tools to align conversations to purpose and situation
  • developing listening and dialogue skills
  • facilitating conversations
