About the Dialogue

Conversations are the conduits of culture. How people interact with each other—or don’t—is what gives a culture its look and feel. However, all too often, people choose not to connect and remain silent, allowing issues to quietly fester. What kinds of conversations do you think we need to have but aren’t having?

In this dialogue, Cylient CEO Dianna Anderson discussed:

  • Why people avoid conversations, and what types of conversations they avoid
  • The cost of silence in an organization
  • Real examples of what kinds of conversations people avoided, and what happened when they used Cylient’s Untying the Knot® approach to address it
  • How to help people build the confidence and skills to address the issues that really matter
