    Engaging Others in the Orderly Conversation

    A fresh approach for high-stakes communication with employees, clients, learners (and practically everyone else)

    Presenter: Greg Owen-Boger | VP of Turbin Communication, Chicago, IL

    At the heart of this session will be the notion that presentations, training sessions, one-on-one performance management discussions, hirings and firings are all “Orderly Conversations,” a type of communication that combines carefully organized message with flexible, spontaneous delivery.   More interactive than a speech, more structured than an informal conversation, Orderly Conversations are uniquely powerful because they are both spontaneous and prepared.   The challenge is we each have an inherent preference for one side of the Orderly Conversation over the other.  Recognizing and adapting to one’s “default approach” allows speakers to capitalize on their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses.

    In this interactive session, we will examine:
    · Engagement, thinking on your feet and managing a genuine Orderly Conversation;
    · Techniques to meet listeners where they are (so they are willing to move forward with you);
    · Your Default Approach and what it means to prepare to be spontaneous;
    · Skills for encouraging participation in the conversation
