Nine Conversations in Leadership

Download Information Guide



Nine Conversations in Leadership™ is a global, innovative leadership development intervention that acts as a catalyst for long-term development of leaders. It is called an “intervention” because it is much more than simply a leadership program – it is an organisational development process.  Leadership Evolution has added the Nine Conversations in Leadership™ to our suite of offerings because it is a group coaching process that supports our frame of relational leadership and action learning. This inspiring program is applicable at every level of the organisation and utilises a process that adapts to the organisation's context. Highlights of the intervention are:

  • Nine facilitated conversations that occur within a small peer group (comprising up to ten people), referred to as a leadership cell.
  • The purpose of each conversation is to share and learn from one another's leadership challenges and successes and to co-create ideas and solutions from shared learning and wisdom – based on their current shared context.
  • It examines leadership in the realms of :

    HeadHead (knowing)
    HeartHeart (being)
    HandsHands (doing)
  • The conversations are: Getting Started, Vision, Community, Alignment, Teams, Developing Individuals, Energy, Self, and Moving On.
  • The intervention focuses on embedding the learnings in to the workplace through action based projects.

The Nine Conversations in Leadership™ intervention fuses organisational development and facilitated learning in a workshop format. It uses 360° feedback, peer coaching and personal development planning to create strong, committed and aligned leaders at all levels of the organisation. It brings participants together repeatedly to explore and cover all aspects of leadership, from organisational leadership to team leadership and the leadership of individuals and self.

Leadership alignment is a critical component for harnessing organisational energy to achieve the organisation's vision, values and strategy. The Nine Conversations in Leadership™ intervention assists organisations to achieve such alignment.
