Effective dialogue and meaningful conversations are at the heart of a learning organization, it is as much a mindset as it is a practice. The more connected we are with one another, the more effective and meaningful our workplace will be. Connection matters more than ever as we transition to a hybrid workforce.

Leveraging coaching and leadership skills, UBC’s COEC conversation compass is an easy to use framework that helps leaders cultivate trust, attend to complex situations, speak honestly, think boldly and facilitate new insights and mutual learning, while moving towards action.
