The World Cafe is a powerful social technology for engaging people in conversations that matter, offering an effective antidote to the fast-paced fragmentation and lack of connection in today’s world. Based on the understanding that conversation is the core process that drives personal, business, and organizational life – it’s a way of thinking and being together sourced in a philosophy of conversational leadership.
