Join Brent Robertson of Fathom for a rousing discussion over breakfast. The topic will be exploring temporality in group conversation.
When working with a client, coworkers or friends, we all walk into a meeting or happening with expectations. And then, the actual conversation begins . . . someone riffs on an unrelated tangent, two different perspectives clash or a dominant personality takes the floor. What happened to the conversation you set out to have? Through the lens of temporality, or interpreting the time continuum, Brent Robertson of creative firm Fathom can shed some light on working with unexpected tension or surprises that may be originating from other places (past, present or future) but show up in a real-time conversation. Brent will help us explore useful ways to examine group dynamics to improve interpersonal communications and conversations. Be sure to bring your own expectations, personality, stories and theories to the table, past or present.
