What is Collaborative Leadership? How can we experience it during a one day workshop? Our previous participants say it best !

“Collaborative leadership is something that has always made me dream for all of what it allows, for all its promises: consistency, happiness at work, creativity emerged. But nothing is more difficult to live on a daily basis. The workshop I attended was a spiritual and concrete experience that made me grow. I felt I was part of the whole. I loved the kindness, the simplicity and humanity. And the powerful tools gave me the‘Breath’ to rethink the Freedom of being and acting everyday.”

~Veronique de Tilly,
Founder of La Maison de L’Enfant, an Ashoka Changemaker School

Join us in Paris on May 29th, 2017 for an exploration of how to use a simple and powerful approach to staying grounded in the midst of turmoil while engaging in conversations that can tap the wisdom of groups and produce effective results.

We will explore how Collaborative Conversations offers a practical and effective way to help groups to shift their thinking and become more adept at coping with the messiness of both business and life.

What if conversations are how work really gets done?

In the old world (the one those of us over 40 grew up in) we were often told to “Stop talking and get to work!” But times have changed. Increasingly, people are recognizing that, far from being separate entities, talk is the essence of action. The Collaborative Conversations wheel is the result of over 20 years of inquiry into the question of, “How do we ensure we are having the right conversation at the right time with the right people about the right thing?”

Collaborative Conversations are a simple framework of four conversations that will help you to tame the complex challenges of getting smart people to be smarter together in the pursuit of excellence. In this workshop, we will explore how to apply the Collaborative Conversations model to a real world business case in order to produce real world results.
