#53 Beyond Polarization: Dialogue as a Tool to Expose Our Fears, Understand Resistance, and Generate Hope and Wisdom
Introduction to the Episode:
Dialogue lifts us out of polarization and into a greater common sense and is a means for accessing the intelligence and coordinated power of groups of people.-– William Issac
We are thrilled to be talking about dialogue and how dialogue skills can help leaders reach new levels of understanding. Dialogue is one of founding principles of our business and the cornerstone of who we are as healthcare leaders, business partners and best friends.
During this episode we are going to share the principles of dialogue that have shaped our beliefs and communication behaviors over the past 30 years. We’ve taught these principles to thousands of clinicians and healthcare leaders who utilized them as the foundation for their healthy healing work cultures.
You probably already know that effective communication is the cornerstone of leadership success. Dialogue is an essential skill for every healthcare leader and that’s why it is one of the Living Principles in Pillar 1 of our Dynamic Balance Effect Framework.
If you are like most leaders, as you listen to the podcast you’re going to discover very quickly the power of dialogue and how dialogue skills are an essential tool to overcome conflict, complaints, and resistance.
During this episode, you’ll realize how leveraging dialogue skills can help you explore opposing points of view, fears, and reduce or eliminate resistance and conflict.
