Together, information and knowledge power professional conversations, and empower influence and leadership. In their Harvard Business Review (2012), article of the same title, Groysberg and Slind proposed that, Leadership Is a Conversation. Conversation illuminates ideas, options, and understandings, and also leads to new knowledge, even wisdom. American feminist, author, and critic Margaret Fuller who implored, If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.
This unit is about conversing with openness and purpose, and about improving the depth, interest and outcomes of professional conversations. Infusing professional conversations with information and knowledge makes them more effective, productive, persuasive, authentic and action orientated. Leaders seek greater rigour in their own exchanges, as well as encouraging those that they influence to seek, inform, authenticate, analyse, interpret and reflect as they converse.
