GROW Voice can help:
- Turn your talent into verbal communication superstars
- Make your meetings and teams more efficient
- Navigate future-casting and project development
- Determine how best to coordinate between departments and facilities
Our methodology takes a strength-based approach that looks at your organization as a holistic system. It is rooted in narrative inquiry and focused on what your organization is already doing well. Confirmation bias dictates that what you choose to focus on, you will find. Our approach actively seeks moments of excellence and amplifies them.
This dynamic process aligns intention, the humans in the room, and verbal communications with your goals as an organization.
Let’s talk about the challenges your organization is facing and whether GROW Voice might be the solution you are seeking.
Presentations are a reality. From annual meetings and conferences to pitch events of all types, you need your teams to be knowledgable, dynamic, clear, and cohesive. Most of all you need them to guide the audience towards your goals. And, for the foreseeable future, you will have to meet these goals in a virtual format. There is subtle neurology at work in every room, and even over Zoom, your team should know how to navigate it.
Perhaps you have identified a set of rising stars who need more development with their speech, overall verbal communications, and/or productivity. We can customize a training session or series to help you develop these talented people and empower them to become more productive, prolific, and professional through clear communication.
Facilitation with Appreciative Inquiry
Appreciative Inquiry is an organizational development tool and data gathering technique. AI facilitates change within organizations by exploring what is already working and what has been successful in the past. In other words, it focuses on positive values and experiences while amplifying the strengths present within the organization.
Underlying principles are:
- Cognitive bias constructs what we see in our environment, therefore we always see more of whatever we are seeking;
- The types of questions we ask determine the outcomes we will discover;
- We can choose to study what we want more of rather than what isn’t working;
- The vision people hold for the future will drive their present actions;
- In order to enact lasting change, people need to feel vested in the process.
The process of Appreciative Inquiry unfolds through a cycle of four phases consisting of a narrative inquiry, future-casting exercises, designing new frameworks, and then deploying the agreed-upon framework. Appreciative Inquiry begins and ends with valuing that which is best in an organization. Our goal is to discover and illuminate those values.
