Dialogue is a fundamental ingredient of an organizational culture that values creativity. It is fundamental because without it, ideas are not challenged and leaders are protected from the scrutiny of diverse perspectives. Ideas become ingrained, encapsulated, and entrenched even when they have ceased to function or when new data has proven them to be obsolete. This presentation seeks to define what dialogue is. It looks at it as a process that involves six basic skills: listening, sharing, imagining, questioning, feeling, and seeing. It also outlines a simple procedure for leading your team through an exercise in dialogue.
