Effective communications is the crux of many work challenges, especially in today’s virtual work world. Emails are often written quickly and can be misinterpreted. Ever get caught trying to read between the lines to find the “real” message? And those conference calls seem to stretch on forever. Do you ever try to multi-task only to find you missed key points?
As a professional, you need to be credible, believable and effective when you communicate. You need to be authentic. Your written and spoken messages must be understood and understood correctly. When you are authentic in your communications, others are as well. This is especially vital in work teams and collaborative programs. Authentic communications empowers everyone to play to their strengths and maximize your collective potential.
Collaboration tools are constantly improving, making it easier for people to bond even though they are not face-to-face. But it’s hard to be authentic if you aren’t aware of your genuine communication style.
This workshop will help you understand your communication style across four key spectrums:
- Thought process: Are you an analytical or conceptual thinker?
- Information organization: Do you take a deductive or inductive approach?
- Expression: Are you more introverted or extraverted?
- Discussion structure: Are you a linear or non-linear storyteller?
Listen and learn about your style—and those of others—and you’ll communicate more effectively, reach agreement faster and work better together.
Monster would like to thank both Ron Ricci and Carl Wiese for presenting this webinar.
