Clear. Succinct. Relevant. Engaging. Powerful. All skills we associate with great communicators and just some of the skills we explore in our Communication Workshop Series. The series is designed to be highly interactive and help you attain the skills you need to help you thrive and leap forward in your role.
“He’s driving me crazy with all his e-mails.” “She’s going to bite my head off!” “Don’t bother with all that research – he’ll never look at it anyway!” “I went in to ask a simple question – two hours later I still did not have an answer.” How can we get past this negative dialogue and focus on productive dialogue? Learn how to use your natural talents to leverage your work and communication style.
You prepared for this conversation, you drafted and re-drafted that e-mail, yet nothing happened. The best intent will not guarantee immediate or great results. What will put you on the road to accomplishing your goal is ensuring others hear you – and that you are also actually hearing what they have to say.
It’s that conversation that either will strengthen your working dynamic or break it. Perhaps it’s some bad news, perhaps it’s about a disappointing behavior, perhaps it’s discussing your difficulties with a situation. Whatever the topic, there is a way to share “crucial” information so that everyone emerges wiser, stronger and able to move forward.
What gets in the way of results? Are we too invested in our way of seeing things? Could we open up to greater opportunities if we looked at things with a new “lens?”
