Conversation for Action

Conversations comprised of requests and promises that are coordinated for bringing about something specific in the future. Conversations for action ground our commitments in time. They clarify and make certain who is committed to doing what by when. And they give us opportunities to discover what we didn’t know we didn’t know. In them, we make promises (for specific actions to specific people in specific timeframes) and requests (of specific people for specific actions in specific timeframes).
