Marylhurst alumna, Cathy Bennett, speaks with doctoral candidate Rusty Horton in her podcast episode “The Practice of Authentic Dialogue” about how authentic dialogue can enhance the practice of Servant Leadership. This allows for participatory decision making that can increase the ability to claim ownership of one’s voice and effectively resolve interpersonal conflict. One of the hallmarks of a decentralized, more horizontal organizational structure is in its ability to create optimal communication flow through constant feedback. That means in simple terms—meaningful dialogue is happening within the organization or system. Approaching connecting and building relationships with others coming from a servant leader’s heart of service first, combined with authentic dialogue, is a winning combination. Join Cathy and her guest Rusty Horton as they discuss the theory and practice of utilizing authentic dialogue with Servant Leadership.
