We have been watching, listening, hoping, looking for a sign that the Coronavirus would just quietly fade away.
Quite clearly, for now and for a while to come, it is not.
The way we are having conversations has, and will continue, to change. At home. At school. In the pub. And at work. Everywhere.
Conversations are our lifeblood. They are how we connect as humans. They help us feel heard, included and valued. For many, they are food for the soul.
Our mission and purpose at Conversation Space is to strengthen human connection through the power of conversation. During this challenging time we are holding on to that mission more than ever.
More and more of us are having to work from home, self-isolate and separate physically from our colleagues, friends even family.
But conversations will not stop. In fact, we already know they will increase. We have had more conversations over the past week than usual – and that’s saying something!
And we will continue to live our purpose and drive our mission to ensure that we strengthen human connection through conversation. For now, virtual conversations. Helping everyone to understand how to provide a space to listen, to be curious, to say ‘I’m feeling scared’ and to stay connected in the virtual world.
Conversational Wisdom is at the heart of what we believe makes a difference in organisations. And we’re looking forward to being creative with you in the way we keep doing this.
More to follow.
In the meantime, we hope you and your families stay healthy and, albeit virtually, let’s keep the conversation going. Please do pick up the phone even if it’s just to have a chat or, if working solo from home for the first time, to connect and talk to someone.
The more we can support each other and strengthen our human connection in our conversations through the coming weeks and months, the better we will all emerge the other side.
If you would like to have a chat about anything, please get in touch.
