First National Bank

Objective

– As part of its intern program, First National Bank wanted its interns to develop career competencies within diverse business units, such as the capacity to think differently and creatively, perceive and respect difference, develop trust and rapport, and to nurture a cohesive, collaborative and borderless culture.

Activities

Over two years, Squishtalks designed and delivered a variety of programs, including an Art of Conversation Workshop, circle conversations, empathy discussions and speed dialogues.

Results

“An outstanding presentation. I did not realize the extent of my lack of conversational dedication and how much of a perishable skill conversation really is. Thanks for giving me a new life perspective.”

“I thought in completely different ways sometimes.”

“I feel more confident going into a difficult conversation and speaking with reality-grounded empathy.”

81% of attendees said they were motivated by the programs.
