We have become used to holding conversations on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and other video conferencing platforms during the pandemic, but whether convening conversations that matter in person or via video conference, we need to develop and improve our leadership and facilitation of these events. I have been fortunate to have experienced memorable conversations with fellow travelers while on a walking safari across the Serengeti in Tanzania and during an expedition by canoe in the Boundary Waters Wilderness Area within the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota, close to the Canadian border. I have also convened conversations that matter with individuals and groups in organizations around the world and with individuals during major life transitions. 

For five key steps for consciously convening conversations that matter, read my recent article Creating Spaces for Conversations that Matter published by People Development Magazine.
