Webinar 5.11.19: Dialogical fitness - Henley Business School Finland

Webinar: Dialogical fitness

Key preparation for high-quality coaching conversations

Dialogue has been described as the ’art of thinking together’. It is an interpersonal mode capable of developing shared ownership of solutions and plans through the respectful exchange of personal viewpoints and open questioning of assumptions. For many coaches, being in dialogue with clients has become an ongoing aspiration. But dialogue can be elusive, requiring well-honed micro skills.

This presentation will argue that it also needs deliberate and disciplined preparation. A model is outlined to show how the management of four energy reserves (physiological, cognitive, emotional and spirit) are critical to facilitating dialogue with others. Implications for practice will be explored using examples.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in the achievement of high-quality conversations, but especially practising coaches, HR/LD professionals, and managers and leaders from any industry or sector.

The fee for the webinar is £25 + VAT (10% discount for Henley alumni; free for Coaching Centre members).
