Working with Dialogue with Sarah Rozenthuler
Team coaching differs from team facilitation in that the coach enables the team to take ownership for their dialogue rather than manage the dialogue for them.
Productive dialogue in a team is core to performance, decision-making and wellbeing. Without the ability to have the conversations that matter most, a team will stay stuck in silo working, personality clashes or ‘process loss’ where the whole is less than the sum of parts.
In this session we will explore how dialogue is different to debate, discussion and serial monologue. We will identify what a team coach can do to support a team to cross the threshold into a more dialogic space where people not only talk together but think together. We will also cover, experientially, a model of four dialogic actions that allow people to ‘read the room’, style flex and participate in more meaningful conversations.
