4:00-5:00pm - Keynote Address -  Dr. Haesun Moon
We live in conversations. In fact, the word, conversation, itself used to mean “dwelling place” in the 14th century. We dwell in many conversations with ourselves and others; the ones we wish we had differently, the ones we hope to have. Conversations of many forms and functions follow simple rules with recursive nature. Some of those conversations are life affirming and some not so much. What makes the difference, and how does a conversation work?
In the field of coaching and mentoring where conversations are often presented as the main means of transformative process, understanding and applying these simple rules and micro-decisions would be not only useful but critically necessary. Dr. Moon will introduce a simple heuristic of interaction with relevant conversation examples in a highly engaging way to facilitate an experiential and reflective learning session.  You will learn simple building blocks of transformative interactions in conversations so that you can intentionally apply them in your next conversation.
