Why good conversations improve performance

People talk at work all the time. Most CEOs, executives, and senior managers, would claim they encourage dialogue in the workplace. When we do it formally in the office space, we call it dialogue. Most of the time it's informal: people share knowledge, exchange opinions, talk to their teams, and chat on the phone. We believe that in so doing, we are engaging with our colleagues.
