In this podcast, we discuss how change happens and manifests in conversations, both for us as humans and for organisations. We will be joined by business leaders, management thinkers and thought leaders from academia and beyond.

Priya Parker: Gatherings that change us

In this episode we meet with conflict resolution facilitator and author, Priya Parker. We discuss takeaways from her book, “The Art of Gathering” and how to make a gathering meaningful, effective and engaging. 
In the pursuit of designing more transformational conversations and meetings, Parker encourages us to address the deepest need of the moment in our gatherings, to name a meeting according to its purpose, and to think about when a conversation or a meeting should take place in the context of the “arch of the week”.
