Conversation Skills for Influencers with Denise Green
I’m all for moving the conversation forward. Thus, I interrupt. When I’m coaching a large group – which is at least a few times a week – I keep an ear to the person in the hot seat and an ear to the group.
When the hot seater goes too deep into background story or veers off track into TMI – I interrupt. While I’ve found this a very effective technique in hot seat coaching with large groups – I had some questions about teaching this technique to other coaching and teaching it as part of evolutionary conversation skills.
