If Meetings Don't Work, Are Conversations the Answer?

Michael Sampson - Currents

Tony talks about the dysfunctional nature of many meetings in organizations, and proposes that the answer is to have "conversations" instead. " The best way to energize thinking is to hold conversations rather than meetings. In our personal lives, we are used to talking openly with one another, but most organizations have failed to capitalize on the power of conversation in a business setting. So how does a conversation differ from a meeting?

Conversations in Context: A Twitter Case for Social Media Systems Design

Charmed Particles

In my world, conversation is suddenly a very hot topic; I'm suddenly sitting down with my institutional customers and they are all talking about how they can build business and technical systems that make conversation easier - with customers, with employees, with vendors, investors and stakeholders.

Conversation Boosts

Michelle Laurie

The power of great conversation never ceases to amaze me. The keys to a great conversation for me include: Expanding the boundaries on a topic to expose complexities. Feeling like your voice is contributing to an evolving conversation…not a static argument of opinions. While this may seem obvious, a bad conversation can be truly disempowering.
