Dialogue Mapping workshop coming up in Napa this August
CogNexus Institute invites NCDD members to take part in their Dialogue Mapping Workshop in Napa, California later this summer on August 23rd and 24th (NCDD supporting members receive a 20% discount!). Led by Dr. Jeff Conklin, author of the book Dialogue Mapping: Building Shared Understanding of Wicked Problems, the workshop will introduce managers, project leaders, facilitators, and consultants to the skill of Dialogue Mapping™, and a whole new way of helping groups solve problems and move forward…
Why Dialogue Mapping? The problems we face today are often complex to the point of being “wicked problems”; problems that can not be understood until we try to solve them, problems with numerous and diverse stakeholders, problems that change while we are trying to understand them. Dialogue Mapping lets us begin to get our arms around these types of problems; managing the complexity of many and varied stakeholder positions, allowing the problem and solution to be explored simultaneously, helping us keep more information available “front and center” for problem solving.
You can find more information — including information on how to receive a 20% discount for this course as a supporting NCDD member — at www.ncdd.org/discounts.
