Chat to gain new perspectives
We use Café Conversations as a starting point for our training programme. Café Conversations are informal, open-ended discussions that allow participants to share their thoughts and ideas on a particular topic. This helps to build relationships between participants, generate new ideas, and explore different perspectives.
Café Conversations are typically facilitated by a trained facilitator who helps to keep the conversation on track and ensure that everyone has a chance to participate. The topics we focus on in Café Conversations are around the goals of the training programme and often focus on topics such as leadership, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
After the Café Conversation, participants are often asked to reflect on what they learned and how they can apply it to their work. This sets the tone for the training programme they will then embark on.
Café Conversations are a valuable tool for adult learning. They provide a safe and supportive environment for participants to share their thoughts and ideas, and they can help to build relationships, generate new ideas, and explore different perspectives.
