R03: Value Centered Dialogue in CDT - CLOSED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this talk I will introduce the basic human values and demonstrate how dialogue revolving around these can play a powerful role in context driven testing leadership. Context is not a static 'thing'. To be context driven therefore implies responding to change. To me, helping people dealing with change in fruitful ways is fundamental in leadership. Values shape our actions and thereby shape us, and through dialogue we can explore our own and company values. As a context driven testing leader it is my ambiton to help people not only cope with change, but also to explore contexts in ways so they carry out valuable and efficient testing, and have fun while learning. I will introduce and explain the concept of protreptic dialogue, a value centered form of dialogue developed in ancient Greece and recently revived and reinvented by professor dr. phil. Ole Fogh Kirkeby at Copenhagen Business School. Leaders who practice protreptic dialogue use it to assist people accepting and dealing with change. I will demonstrate how protreptic dialogue can take place, discuss the actual outcomes of it and will share my own experiences using it in the workplace. I expect participants to be inspired to talking about human values with colleagues, bosses, teams and team members while exploriong contexts. I also expect some to want to learn more about protreptic dialogue.
