About this Episode

In this episode, Bob’nJoyce share ideas on facilitating powerful conversations when differences exist in the room (BTW, differences always exist).

As OD practitioners, we are all familiar with the setting of norms for teams to engage in respectful, bold dialogue. Today, Joyce reaches into her treasure trove of practical guidelines to facilitate real and productive conversations. While these ideas can be used in the context of DEI conversations, they apply universally to any topic or situation.

These guidelines are effective at helping:
• A new team hit the ground running.
• A cross functional group working on a thorny problem.
• A group that comes together from diverse cultures and/or countries.
• A team where there are strong conflicting beliefs or opinions.

So come on in. Grab a snack. Welcome!
