As I hope you know by now Nancy Dixon, John Hovell and I have been working closely together to develop the ideas that underpin Conversational Leadership and are running a three-day workshop on Conversational Leadership in September.

I am finding this collaborative effort of enormous value, John, Nancy and I are different people, with different skill sets and a different focus on the subject of conversation. This diversity has made for some engaging, creative discussions at times, and slowly, we are shaping our thoughts together.

John has recently published this article on Linkedin: Could “Conversational Leadership” Avert Deeply Troubling Times Ahead? which explains Conversational Leadership in a style that is somewhat different from mine, including thoughts and ideas that I have yet to think or write about myself. I love the post, and it has really provoked my thinking. I hope you enjoy it too.
It is through conversation that each of us can partner and understand each other in a deeper, more meaningful way.

We can try to make sense of the complexity and chaos around us through conversation.
