In Session 5 of The WorkshopBank Podcast, I’m talking to Paul Culmsee who is one of only four fully qualified dialogue mappers in the world.
He’s on the show to show me how Dialogue Mapping works and what it can do for you and your delegates.
You’ll learn when to use it and when not to. You’ll learn how the process works and what the benefits are that participants experience when they’re being mapped.
And here’s a live demo of Paul and I solving one of the worlds most talked about wicked problems…
In this podcast session you’ll learn:
- Learn from one of only four Dialogue Mappers in the world what Dialogue Mapping is and what it can do for you and your delegates
- Learn when to use Dialogue Mapping and when not to (hint: it looks like a MindMap but it’s also completely different according to Paul!)
- Learn how their is no setup or training that the participants have to go through when they’re in a Dialogue Mapping session
- Learn how all participants feel like they’re being heard when being Dialogue Mapped
- Hear Paul talk through an amazing case study when he used Dialogue Mapping for the first time in anger
- Hear how you don’t need to be an expert in the subject being discussed (much like Dynamic Facilitation)

Thanks very much Paul, for coming on the show. I really enjoyed our chat and loved the Lord of the Rings demo. It would be amazing to do something like this with a larger group at some point.
The next session of The WorkshopBank Podcast will be coming very soon where I’m heading to Canada (virtually not physically) to talk with a Knowledge Management expert. You’re not going to want to miss it.
