“The only thing you need to fix is the way your people talk to each other. Fix the conversations and you have the tools to fix the people challenges!”
It’s time to bring back the art and power of conversation in the workplace. It’s time to empower our leaders to direct and create the change required for business success.
Leaders spend 80% of their time in conversations, and employees on average spend 37% of their time in meetings. That’s a lot of time for potential non-useful interaction.
95% of business dialogue is telling and instruction – and humans don’t like being told what to do. Our primal limbic brain sees being ‘told’ as a threat and this is an unconscious internal reaction that impedes clarity of thought, confidence and creativity.
We are obsessed with digital technology, yet conversation is the most sophisticated technology we have for getting things done. Forget email, message, and integrated digital systems. They are all wonderful support technologies, but they need quality dialogue to leverage their potential.
NAKED, NURTURED and NUDGED is a must-read text that combines the neuroscience of communication with quality coaching techniques to supercharge your conversations. Michelle Loch’s REWIRED Conversations methodology shows you how to get the best from your people by facilitating NAKED conversations that get to the ‘truth’; NURTURE conversations that ensure ‘safety’; and NUDGED conversations that enable the ‘stretch’ and challenge in thinking that we need to take our performance to the next level.
