At lunch time I participated in a Knowledgeboard online workshop where I was the guest speaker - the topic - "The role of conversation in KM".

I spent the morning printing out some of my presentations and articles so they were at hand in case I needed inspiration. My fear was that I might run out of things to say. I should know better by now Smile!

There was no shortage of conversation and the hour passed incredibly quickly. As ever when I speak at any conference I am too close to the subject and interaction to gauge how well it really went or was received but I came away happy. And I hope I did a little to help get people to think more about the role of conversation in our everyday business lives. If you are interested the transcript will be edited and published on the site soon.

What was fun though was that Lilia Efimova blogged the event - not in great detail but she did capture some of the points. Thank you Lilia.

Her summary was cool :

a good conversation = trust + (history: people and topics->) context + open emotions + questions that invite everyone to participate (<- reflection)

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
