Conversational Intelligence® and the Neuroscience of Conversation
In every aspect of our lives, our ability to connect—to be in relationship—is vital to our well-being. Building quality relationships means establishing a foundation of trust and safety, courageously exploring ideas openly and honestly, genuinely seeking to understand and grow with others. As coaches and consultants we know that the ability to build relationships starts with emotional intelligence, and the only way to put that intelligence to work is through conversation.
Conversational Intelligence® is a coaching and consulting framework developed by Judith E. Glaser, and based upon a growing body of neuroscience research. We are now able to understand much more about what’s really going on in our brains during conversation. We become aware of the power of words to trigger positive or negative responses, and Judith has provided us with a wealth of conversational skills, tools, and rituals for us and for our clients to become better, more competent communicators.
At this Change SIG, Carol Brainard will give you a brief introduction to the C-IQ framework and the neuroscience of conversation, introduce you to some of the C-IQ essential skills, and lead you in activities that will enable you to experience the value of C-IQ tools.
Carol Brainard is an executive coach and OD change consultant who specializes in trust- and relationship-building skills for senior leaders and their teams. She is a Conversational Intelligence® Certified Coach, having been a member of the first cohort of the Core and Enhanced programs in 2016.
