Management Development Conversations
“Just because YOU think you’re right, doesn’t actually make you right!” This was a conversation I heard between two learners during a Management Development workshop I was hosting.
It opened a really interesting discussion about how much some people hold on to their views in order to prove themselves correct. Even when they start to believe there may be merit in other people’s views.
Some of the best Managers I’ve worked with have a talent for being able to step back and take on other people’s opinions. These Managers also happen to be excellent at conversation and communication. Coincidence? I think not!
I love this TED Talk from Celeste Headlee about ‘10 ways to have a better conversation’. Celeste is a radio host and her advice translates beautifully from advice for individuals to advice for business managers too.
The topic of ‘communication’ crops up a lot the Management Development programme I design and deliver, but this different slant on ‘conversations’ is well worth a view with some great points for all. Enjoy!
