Leadership Conversation 30:  Connect not Convince

This report of our first three-night Leadership Conversation focuses on a truly transformational principle for team working that captured our imagination and demonstrated its capacity to change behaviour throughout the whole Conversation. Through applying this principle we achieved higher levels of mutual trust than at any time before.

In relatively few words, the report draws out the essence of Connect not Convince and its capacity to enable leaders to step into more authentic relationships with team members.
