Conscious interoffice communication is more important than ever. Are you able to you rein in your own emotions before and while speaking to others? Do you know how to adjust your message to match your audience? Do you know the personality styles of your peers, direct reports and your leader? Are you able to lead a conversation about social injustice without loosing control?
However, while mindfulness is receiving a lot of press, an expansion of the working from home environment has also made conscious communication more challenging.
- Do you give others your undivided attention? Or do you multitask when others are speaking?
- Do you turn off your video feed, depriving others of non-verbal clues?
- Have you recorded yourself and examined your motions from the viewer’s perspective?
Join us to learn the basics of mindful communication and how to make adjustments for a WFH world.
