What is the People’s Stage?
Every year, many Wisdom 2.0 participants ask how they can share their great work, insights, and presentations with our community. We are happy to announce the return of The People’s Stage to our 2017 annual conference.
The People’s Stage is a series of interactive breakout sessions submitted by registered conference attendees and selected by popular community vote. The People’s Stage has space for 130 participants, as it is designed for more intimate, interactive sessions. Sessions are about 18 minutes long.
Title: Powerful Conversations 2.0
Description: How do you help people to change? This session will help leaders and coaches to have Powerful Conversations that shift the mindset of others. I demonstrate my favorite tools to be both AUTHORITATIVE and ADAPTIVE at the same time.
You are adaptive when you listen, give empathy, and ask questions to elicit new thinking. You facilitate and coach, staying "one step behind" the client. Great! But it's only half the game.
You are authoritative when you stand tall for your ideas, challenge their thinking with rigor, and suggest different approaches that expand their thinking. Here you are "a step ahead" -- but not attached to being right. Rather, you disrupt conventional thinking to pave the way for breakthrough results.
Join us to learn how to blend authority with adaptivity to become an effective thought partner for bigger impact.
