Increasing the collaborative intelligence of teams by using deep dialogue practices

Team collaboration has become a pivot of organizational success.

If people had an intuitive awareness of the structure of their thinking, team work would be a lot more effective since a greater mutual understanding and decision making would prevail. Such an awareness being absent, what meta-cognitive strategies can we use to heighten such an awareness?

As the book ‘Practices of Dynamic Collaboration’ shows, a very effective strategy consists of  intentionally listening and speaking based on dialectical ‘thought forms’.

Discover how the collaborative intelligence paradigm derived from Laske’s Dialectical Thought Form Framework works when applied in five crucial organizational practices seen as dialogue practices. Sign up for partaking of introductory sessions on team dialogue practices at:
