Most of the top reasons that teams, departments, and organizations as a whole don’t live up to their full potential are caused by lackluster communication, or a total lack of communication. Some of the most systemically detrimental issues caused by these communication breakdowns are the following: Lack of trust in the workplace, scarcity of creative solutions, and an overall absence of shared vision, or feeling of belonging to something greater than oneself. The slower pace and nature of dialogue opens up space for more creative solutions, and also ensure that all employees are heard, understood, and valued, resulting in restored trust and a widespread sense of inclusion. This is done through shifting attention from improving the “parts” of an organization, to improving the relationships between the parts.
“Full Circle Dialogue helped me to really think about what was missing in my relationships with others: Communication. The guided session forced everyone to take a step back and realize that compassion and understanding for the group as a whole is far greater than any one person trying to get his or her point across.”
