what becomes possible when we learn to skilfully practise generative conversation?
Our world needs generative conversations - conversations capable of producing something new and supporting its development - more than ever.In an era of increasing complexity and big challenges, many of us are looking for new ways to engage in respectful conversations that generate deep collaboration and thoughtful action.
The Art of Hosting and Harvesting Conversations that Matter (also known as the Art of Participatory Leadership) training offers simple and powerful participatory practices, patterns and processes. These approaches have been usedeffectively in government, non-government and community contexts worldwide to enable the inclusion of diverse perspectives for better outcomes. We warmly invite you to join us for a 3-day training event in the heart of the Australian capital, where politics are debated and policy is enacted,wherepeople bring their voices to be heard, and international representation is located - the centre of decision-making for this big, beautiful land.
