The power of dialogue
4iforum brings you the power of dialogue - where developing a questioning mindset to create new insights is more important than having the answers.
For the last 100 years, business leadership has focused on value creation based on three core truths; a robust business model, clarity about the market and a responsive organisational design.
These enduring themes forged in the furnace of the industrial revolution relied on leaders to deliver strategy, efficiency and a motivated workforce.
But in 2020, businesses everywhere had a rude awakening – how do you form a strategy when you have no clue what’s coming next? How do you plan when there is no runway?
It is time for new thinking about models of organisation, management, business and work. The problems the world faces cannot be solved by one person, a few thought leaders, or by someone with an expertise in one discipline.
Poor decision-making and judgements can be as a result of leaders asking the wrong questions in a demanding environment.
In such unprecedented times we need to think about our thinking.
Our forums will help you to elicit contributions to determine whether the ideas, arguments and findings you thought you knew were right represent the entire picture and that means being open to finding out that what you thought was right, may not be.
Dialogue provides a platform for spending time developing a fuller understanding of the context of the problem, improving collective knowledge and creating the opportunity for uncovering the unknown to reveal alternative realities.
In a business environment where so many unknowns exist, it is essential that organisation’s find memorable ideas, promote mindset shifts, remove barriers and, in doing so, create the impetus for change whilst building stronger relationships.
4iforum dialogic forums explores emergent thinking about enduring themes to deliver breakthrough solutions that enable people to become the change that is needed to create a new reality.
