    Adaptive Conversations—Connecting to Multiple Intelligences

    8:15 amImagineIT, Bloomington

    Conversations are a core element of human interaction. Adaptive Conversations are a way of speaking that adapts the conversation to accommodate verbal and non-verbal feedback. Adaptive Conversation:

    • Asks more thought-provoking questions
    • Uses active listening where speakers are sensitive to the feelings and emotions of others
    • Develops greater abilities to sense, interpret, and respond to the unique set of needs and problems of others
    • Focuses empathy toward others by identifying contextual cues from feedback, and then adapting and modifying one’s own words, tone, and physical movements

    Drawing from classical behavioral and social sciences, and the thought leadership of Emotional, Social, and Conversation Intelligence, we will explore Adaptive Conversations for improving:

    • Leadership
    • Culture and Engagement
    • Sales
    • Customer Experience
