“Don’t gobblefunk around with words.”
About the Day
Our work is carried through the medium of words – and through the silences between words. We connect through words. Healthy, successful professional and business relationships depend on our ability to be in dialogue – to use the ‘best words in the best order’.
That is why we need to become Dialogue Artists. Dialogue allows each person in the conversation to think and share clearly – allowing the right words to emerge at the right moment. It ensures that the best ideas and solutions emerge naturally out of collective reflection, imagination and cognition. Respect for the others’ thinking and the capacity to be in the flow of exchange appropriately, are key ingredients in skilful dialogue processes.
In this workshop, we will use the work of Bohm, Issacs and Buber to establish key ideas about dialogue including exploration of the political and ontological basis of Buber’s thought. His ‘I-Thou’ is as relevant to our well-being as practitioners, as it is to providing a necessary counterpoint to the contemporary political and spiritual climate in which we all work.
We will frame the focus on dialogue with reference to ‘WHO you are is HOW you work’, to the relational skills required for us to be dialogue artists at work and to the effects of digitisation on our minds.
This workshop will remind you of how you relate and speak when you are working at your best! It will also equip you with new ideas and practices to deepen your skills. The day will include teaching, demonstration, guided visualization and experiential work. And there will be plenty of time to dialogue about what emerges in our session – so come prepared to talk, share and enjoy!
