The dialogue lounge
You can’t have a transforming conversation without dialogue. By dialogue we mean the kinds of conversations that change something in us when we take part in them, and that shift something between the people who are involved in the conversation.
True dialogues requires us to occupy our vulnerability, sit in our authenticity and to co-create a space where others can do the same.
The Dialogue Lounge is a facilitated mobile space we create where diversity and inclusion are key. Challenges within organisations are often not solved from the top, rather through new conversations and true dialogue. In an age of digital hyper connectivity, we are more disconnected than ever - we need to reclaim conversation. Dialogue supports breakthroughs in thought, ideas, feelings and relationships.
Our Dialogue Lounge can be set up in any business, organisation or community to:
Support a shared goal
Bridge a division, increase cohesion
Manage difficult change in periods of transition
Shared Value Social Lab
The principles of Shared Value are maturing, and business can’t afford to not be in this conversation now. In our Shared Value Social Lab we work with businesses to engage with a diverse range of stakeholders (internal and external), anchored in a quest (challenge), on a topic of systemic relevance to both the business and the community.
Brings together a diversity of stakeholders from both inside the business, and out
Co-creates a quest between participants, to explore areas of intersection of community need and business opportunity and develop a shared theory of change
Allows for experimentation, prototyping and fast learning cycles, opening space to fail and try again. We cultivate the ability of not knowing and holding questions, allowing things to emerge
Has prototype solutions as an outcome. These go through a continuous iteration of testing in the real world, collecting data for further refinement and testing again. The driving enquiry behind the data is “how can we do business better, for our own people, our community, and the planet?”
