Seven Essential Elements of Meaningful Communication with Fred Dust, former Senior Partner and Global Managing Director at IDEO

About this Event

Conversations are one of the most fundamental means of communicating we have as humans. At their best, conversations are unconstrained, authentic and open—two or more people sharing thoughts and ideas in a way that bridges our individual experiences, achieves a common goal. At their worst, they foster misunderstanding, frustration and obscure our real intentions. From the lapses of empathy, breakdowns in political discourse, and disconnections of our over-connected world, conversation is the talking cure.

Fred Dust’s upcoming book, Making Conversation: Seven Essential Elements of Meaningful Conversation, discusses how to design conversations that are meaningful and impactful. During this virtual event, Dust will outline the four elements essential to successful exchanges: Commitment, Creative Listening, Clarity, and Context. Taken together, these four elements form a set of resources anyone can use to be more deliberate and purposeful in making conversations work.
