Given the complex and cross functional nature of transformation, conversations are a key part of leading successful change initiatives. But we’ve never been taught how to have a real conversation. So Oliver Banks is talking to Lou Banks, founder of Rising Vibe, and exploring how to have a real and meaningful conversation.
