To build great teams you need to understand people. One of your core skills as a leader should be the ability to have effective conversations with your team, the rest of your organization, and your customers.

Unfortunately, the ability to have an effective conversation is often seen as an innate skill that cannot be improved — and I see people making the same easily fixed mistakes again and again.

This session will help you get the most from your conversations. We’ll demonstrate common mistakes, and introduce you to simple proven techniques used by user researchers, therapists, salespeople, and others.

You’ll come away with a new way to look at conversations, along with practices you can use everywhere from retrospectives to interviewing job candidates.
