Kierkegaard by Nature engages in a research collaboration with Associate Professor Anete Mikkala Camille Strand and Professor Finn Thorbjørn Hansen who are a part of Center for Dialogue and Organisation (CDO) at Aalborg University.
CDO works theoretically and practically with professional conversations and innovative processes in organisations, e.g. leadership communication, value- and wonder-based conversations, educational dialogues and creative development processes, coaching, and conflict management. Conversations are seen as the entry point for theoretical and analytical understanding of interpersonal relations and as a tool to intervention and innovation in organisations.

Qualification of the Wonder-Dialogue in Kierkegaard by Nature
Finn will be following Kierkegaard by Nature together with his colleague, Anete Strand, partially to conduct qualitative interviews and partially to further develop the dimension of dialogue in order to improve people’s ability to be wondering together. This, both during and after the philosophical walk.
