Conversations That Matter
with Digby Scott

Welcome to ‘Conversations that Matter’

Led by: Digby Scott

This full-day masterclass will be held on Tuesday 29 June 2021. 


Meaningful and effective conversations, are, at their essence, what drives the performance and development of your people, your team and your culture. As an emerging leader, the ability to recognise which conversations matter – and then have those conversations – is an essential skill in today’s workplace.

If conversation is a core business process, we might as well pay attention to how we’re having those conversations.

This masterclass is designed to help you have more high impact, high quality conversations with people that matter, to improve the effectiveness of your leadership. As a result of attending, you’ll be able to have more robust, authentic conversations that empower people, accelerate learning and drive business results. All while staying aligned to your values and purpose as a leader.

In this practical, hands-on workshop, we’ll cover everything from the essentials to the tricky bits. We’ll dive into:

  • The impact of high quality conversations
  • Key elements of conversations that matter
  • Staying grounded in values and purpose
  • Five levels of intention
  • Fostering a growth mindset
  • Spotting ‘coachable moments’
  • Powerful listening and questioning
  • Tapping into motivation
  • How to make feedback work
  • The courage to ‘call it’
  • Navigating difficult conversations

Creative, curious and a master communicator, Digby has a unique perspective on the leadership and workplace challenges that we are all trying to navigate.

He’s also fallen flat on his face more times than he cares to remember. The good thing is that he’s taken those lessons and applied them to helping thousands of leaders to learn how to develop themselves, and grow others, so they create lives worth living and cultures worth being a part of.
