SlowTalk allows participants to meet as equals during strategic meetings and thus tap into the potential of each other. People feel at ease and as a result, are more inclined to contribute their ideas and listen to those of others when they are co-operating in a clear and transparent structure.
Keeping participants accountable to an agreed process engenders the necessary safety for participants to contribute creatively, i.e. bring in ideas that go beyond conventional thinking patterns.
Bonus: operating outside conventional patterns also means that participants feel free to question the contributions of others in a non-confrontational manner so that discrepancies can be bridged in order to arrive at genuine understanding. Participants experience the formal structure and learn to apply an attitude of cooperation to discover possible synergies so the group can align itself with the organization’s goals.
Turn time consuming debates and arguments into constructive conversations – with great benefits.
