What we’re about
The purpose of a “Knowledge Café” is to bring people together in an effort to learn from each other. The learnings are directly applied to make a positive difference in the world. Knowledge Cafés are mini-workshops where the participants engage in the theme of the evening. They are about networking, knowledge sharing and learning from each other – as opposed to presentations with questions-and-answer at the end. The presenter offers a short introduction, followed by 3 rounds of small group conversation. The night ends with a large group discussion.
The outcome for the participants is individual choice. It is often something that each individual views differently, that they can act on and do differently - immediately!
These cafes are directly based on David Gurteen’s large and long standing global community. More information available at http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/kcafes

- What is Conversational Leadership? How do I practice it?Link visible for attendees
I'm back, the Knowledge Cafe is back! Apologies for the several skipped months of Knowledge Cafes. I don't know how to share that I'm going through personal challenges, so I'll just leave it at that for now. Let's re-start our Knowledge Cafe momentum? And - let's try one more cafe before the end of the year!
Several of us are working on Conversational Leadership every single day and we continue to advance this emerging field. Let's continue to learn and practice Conversational Leadership together, so this cafe is all about "What is Conversational Leadership? How do I practice it?" It just seems to continue to be so timely and important.
As always, we'll follow the Gurteen Knowledge Cafe process, so we'll start with a 15 minute provocation. I'll offer the provocation this time - where I'll share our latest thinking, feeling, models, theories, and practical applications of Conversational Leadership for your consideration. We'll then do 3 rounds of small group conversations about the 2 questions, then we'll close with a full group conversation.
Great to be back, see you soon - virtual for free as always,
