Conversational Intelligence

Conversational Intelligence Enhances Leadership, Trust, and an Organization’s Culture

We are in conversations every day, typically 60-80% of the day! But research from MIT shows that 9 out of 10 conversations miss the mark!  We’ve all been in conversations where we:

  • talk past each other
  • talk over each other
  • trigger each other and
  • simply stop listening to each other

Many of these poor conversations can be associated with our need “to be right,” which makes our brain focus on looking for evidence to prove we are. We then stop listening to other perspectives and simply fight for our point of view. Such challenges can cause lack productivity, reduce trust between colleagues, managers and employees and ultimately have a negative effect on an organization’s culture and results.

The Power of Conversational Intelligence

Conversational Intelligence is the next generation of intellect and skills that enables leaders and teams to move from an I-Centric state-of-mind to “WE-Centric.” By learning how to connect, navigate and grow with others, you can begin building the framework of trust, which is the platform from which great conversations emerge.  Conversational Intelligence starts with five fundamental skills:

  1. Listen to connect
  2. Ask questions for which you have no answers
  3. Prime for trust
  4. Sustain conversational agility
  5. Dive deep to understand what others are actually seeing

Using these skills, Conversational Intelligence provides an innovative framework for understanding how conversations shape our relationships, partnerships and our culture. Ultimately, it results in higher levels of trust, activates higher levels of engagement, strengthens partnerships and is the catalyst for co-creation and innovation in teams and cultures.
