Power of Future Conversation
Run time: 18 Minutes
Conversation is a tool that gives leaders the power to translate possibility into action. Contrary to the old saying, talk is not
cheap. Conversation is the driving force behind positive change and it is what moves people and organizations into the future.
Through this program, based on the work of author and consultant Kim Krisco
and his book, Leadership and the Art of Conversation
, participants will learn that too many organizations are overly focused on the past. They see that by changing the way in which conversations/meetings are framed, incredible possibilities for the future can become realities.
Six important principles are covered:
Other Version Available:

- Shift the conversation first from the past to the future, and then to the present.
