“I wanted to update myself on the use of conversations in the workplace. I was impressed by the practical way theory was used to educate participants. Bill’s excellent modelling of the techniques as they were introduced was helpful, as was the way practice sessions were constructed. I’m already using the self-coaching guide as a valuable resource. Bill’s ability to work with the  group in a practical way was impressive. He did practice what he preached!” Donna George - Edmund Rice Education Australia

What’s this about?... Casual, crucial or contentious, the calibre of your conversations count in so many ways for leadership success. They’re a telling indicator of workplace culture. They’re the cement that holds functional teams together. Through strategic conversations, leaders connect, inspire, influence, energise, make decisions, problem-solve and move people to action. Your strategy, in the end, is only as good as the conversations you use to explain and shape it.

Leading through Conversations revolves around a central principle: to keep conversations constructive you have to stay connected and in-dialogue with the people you lead. This can’t-miss, 2-day coaching clinic centres on 7 keys to unlock the art of more constructive conversation-making. It equips you with easy-to-learn tools to tone-up your conversational leadership capacity and boost your ability to conduct more powerful conversations. You’ll learn how to:

·         Grasp the essentially conversational nature of leadership

·         Apply 7 Principles to master more constructive conversations

·         Assert yourself more positively, powerfully and persuasively

·         Turn dead-end debates into skilful discussion and dialogue

·         Become more aware and present in your conversations

·         Engage people in more frank and open interchanges

·         Balance your say with hearing what they’ve got to  say

·         Make meetings more meaningful and deal with the real issues

·         Keep discussion on track and channel differences of opinion

·         Create a more connective conversational culture

“A great couple of days. The interactive activities were unique and the hands-on approach very useful – as was having a bit of a laugh along the way. The guide is very easy to read and comprehensive. It’s definitely helped me have the courage to approach conversations I previously scampered from. Bill obviously has a talent for bringing out the best in people and helping us learn better ways of going about things through his knowledge, experience, fabulous facilitation and sense of humour.” Tameeka Sainsbury – Pacific Pines State high School
