What is a real conversation?

According to Mel Schwartz, “a real conversation is an adventure into the unfamiliar where two people present their authentic self, unguarded and welcoming the uncertain.”

I love the references to “unguarded” and “welcoming the uncertain” - it captures the risk one takes when entering into genuine dialogue. It is indeed an adventure into the unfamiliar.

And it’s an adventure worth taking, particularly if you want:

  • innovation

  • trust 

  • speed

  • closure

  • progress

Each of these points came up last week as part of an offsite for the leadership at Abletech, a team investing in the adventure of real conversations in 2024. 

This was my first team day for the year - couldn’t have been a better team to work with!
