Ep 062: The Power of Conversation

In this episode, we’re joined by Dr. Antonia Dietmann, to discuss the value of social chats in the workplace.

Antonia outlines her own doctoral research on the topic, illustrating the value such conversations bring to trust and team effectiveness.

In the present context, we’d suggest that conversations within teams are more important than ever, so we hope you’ll be prompted to reach out to colleagues to see how they’re doing. Our thanks to Antonia for her time and for sharing her expertise.
