Making Space for Generative Dialogue

Generative dialogue is the ability to produce new value and meaning through words.

Can a leader truly create the space for generative dialogue to happen? Absolutely. 

Five characteristics of leaders who create spaces for the possibilities with generative dialogue:

  1. Readiness to honor others
  2. Willingness to forgo sharing their own story
  3. Desire to connect before gathering information
  4. Understanding of the role of facilitator
  5. Pursuit of uncovering the unexpected complementary call .
