Consider this perspective: Organizations are networks of conversations and commitments, not adequately reflected in any org chart. Managers manage the fulfillment of others’ promises rather than the people themselves. When managers lead, they hold themselves accountable for their conversations – conversations that can positively influence how others execute.
This commitment-based approach to management requires additional skills and conversational competencies. Discover what’s possible when adopting this approach while practicing this conversational art with other attendees. As a result, you’ll identify your growth edges and realize how these practices can gain traction to make a difference!
