John Hovell recently posted an item on Linkedin about a possible Conversational Leadership framework and a discussion has started.

In past months, John and I have spent many hours talking about this framework and neither of us is happy with it. It's a starting point for discussion. Here are a few thoughts of mine.

To shape up this framework, we need to first define the purpose. What is it meant to depict? How is it intended to help? What is the question it answers? Does a framework even make sense?

I feel we have put a lot of things in boxes and are trying to connect them in some sort of linear/logical manner but as John points out above, is it even possible to "map" such a complex topic in such a structured way. My answer is "No, we can't but then what can we do, if anything?." So my key question for anyone reading this. Do we need a Conversational Leadership framework and if so, what should be the purpose?

Go take a look, join the conversation.
