Position titles and sector boundaries dissolve as we embrace the rich mix of participants. Non-profit, for-profit, government, foundation, church, consultant, coach. Some are running big organizations; others, small teams. Some are bringing a youthful zeal to new work; others are seasoned and seeking to contribute in new ways; still, others are seeking ways to reimagine themselves in pursuit of their greatest personal contribution. These are the individuals — and teams — who bring each Conversation to life.
After several years, we have witnessed a set of characteristics among participants who seem to invest the most energy and derive the most benefit from Conversation. The most engaged participants are those with a willingness to contribute, a commitment to openness, and a desire for profound change.
