HUE Conversation Method
(a.k.a. DEVCA)

Learn how to apply an inclusive framework for engagement, collaboration, and discovery resulting in a shared appreciation and understanding that drives teams to better-informed decisions and actions

Conversations have potential for profound impact, but too often they end in frustration after meaningless chatter. Learn how to implement our framework for inclusive conversations that encourage participation from every group member and naturally move the collective from inquiry to informed action.

HUE Conversations is a one day workshop that teaches participants the core principles and approach to effectively facilitating meaningful results from formal meetings in a boardroom to personal chats with a community or family member.

DEVCA stands for:

D = Databased Thinking

E = Emotive Thinking

V = Visionary Thinking

C = Critical Thinking

A = Action-Oriented Thinking

Although we all have the ability to think in a variety of ways, most of us find it easiest and most comfortable to approach situations from one or two lenses. This is neither good nor bad, however, it is important to be aware of the assumptions and tunnel-vision that occur by limiting our individual and group thinking to just one or two styles of thinking. Challenge your own thought process and develop greater awareness of group processing in our HUE™ Conversations Course not only learning the natural way the brain processes information, but also understanding how individual personality traits can change thinking.

I give Hue Life my highest recommendation. The Hue methods have been a game changer for my success at work and for me guiding teams to high performance. The tools are simple and practical to use; as well as easy to adapt for multiple situations. The approach guarantees people feel included and that their voice is heard. Hue Life has created a methodology that takes into account personality styles, group dynamics, and gives me as the facilitator powerful tools to lead through the most challenging of conversations.
