You’ve probably heard about being intentional when you meditate, study, eat, or work out. Now you’re about to learn about intentionality in conversational leadership.
Conversational intentionality is about knowing ahead of time how you are going to hold a conversation and what your end point is.
All conversations, even the really good ones, have to end at some point. One aspect of intentionality is that it makes the effort needed to end the conversation a little easier than in a wandering dialogue. Having an end in mind, even if it’s vague, helps the people involved to identify the right place to wind things up.
