What is a Working Dialogue?

What is a Working Dialogue?

Garrett, Peter. “What is a Working Dialogue?” 2016.

“You may have heard people talking about a Working Dialogue, or you may at some point be invited to participate in one, and wonder what is involved. This article describes why the Department is introducing Working Dialogues and how they are structured. Working Dialogues are all about putting Dialogue to work in the everyday workplace, to make it easier to get things done and to be more efficient or effective. There are some ideas, opportunities and issues that have always been addressed directly with your supervisor or line manager, and that remains unchanged. There are others that are more difficult because they involve a range of different stakeholders, departments or people who are affected by the situation – and this is where the Working Dialogue comes in.”
