Strengthening human connection.
Through the power of conversation.

What we do

Conversations are one of the critical pillars of business success: they are the essence of how we connect, build trust, inspire and deliver results.

Performance reviews, appraisals, career conversations or honest chats. Coaching, mentoring, feedback. In learning & development we use a lot of terms. So, to keep things simple, we just call them conversations. And through our award-winning programmes, we help your leaders make the most of them.

In their words

"Sara and Emily are true experts in helping leaders develop the skills in human connection, building teams who have the trust and resilience to thrive through uncertainty and change. We wanted to give some of our future leaders the opportunity to develop their Human-Centred Leadership and think about the importance of these skills as the world becomes more digital and automated. Throughout the workshop we saw our participants grow in confidence and there were lots of light-bulb moments as they reflected on how they lead their teams, their own motivations and emotions and how they can build the human connections they need with their team members, leaders and stakeholders. It’s been a joy working with them, their collaborative style, transformative facilitation and experience working across multiple organisations and industries has added depth and breadth to our leadership programme at Boots."

"Working with Conversational Wisdom was such a refreshing approach. We were able to use a well evidenced and developed model and framework and then very much work with the Conversation Space Team to tailor that around our business need, targeting the areas where we most need to change, to get something that’s really pragmatic and can quickly make a difference to our leaders."

"The Listen Down reverse mentoring programme delivered by Conversation Space has been very insightful, and has allowed us to reflect how a corporate approach to reverse mentoring would be of further benefit to us as an organisation. The programme was well structured and well supported, and the team at Conversation Space have collaborated well with our staff members. Their passion for engagement and power of conversation is clear and this has been a takeaway for us as an organisation."

"TCS partnered with us to design a learning solution to support our managers across the Tesco Group to have better workplace conversations. Under-pinned by Conversational Wisdom®, the offering includes a workshop, videos, and podcast, all of which have been well received by our participants. Throughout the engagement the TCS team has been flexible, added value outside the solution, delivered the project on time, and we would recommend them as partners/suppliers."

"We used The Conversation Space recently to support us in the work we are doing around Mental Health, specifically how we better enable our people to feel safe talking about mental health and to have better conversations around this increasingly important topic. We were keen to build on the work that had already been done and we found Conversation Space to be incredibly flexible to ensure our requirements were met. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them and would definitely welcome the opportunity to work with them again."
