How Collective Intelligence Can Change Culture

How Collective Intelligence Can Change Culture - Marsha Acker

Marsha Acker

June 10, 2021


The fastest way to change the culture in an organization is by changing the way we talk and think together.

The single greatest predictor of success is the way we are having or not having conversations, and if we can learn to be more intentional in how we invite, cultivate, participate and facilitate conversations there will not be any challenge that an organization cannot skillfully navigate in order to produce effective outcomes. 

But what if our conversations are stuck or ineffective? What if conversations break down instead of generating new collective thinking? We’ll look at conversations and how to use the structure of the conversations to harvest the intelligence that already exists and the role leaders play in creating a space for dialogue and thinking together in order to greatly change the nature of the discourse.
