The Lost Art of Live Communication

Add to calendar

Have you ever been in the same room with co-workers and sent them a Slack or text message instead of having a live conversation? Many people are starting to prefer virtual or instant chat messaging to live conversations, but live communication can get better results at work. As technology professionals, we often focus more on technical skills and ignore the important communication skills. Join Jennifer Bonine to see how to make the most of—and get the best results from—your live conversations. Jennifer shares a toolkit to help you assess your core communication competencies and see how you can build and improve on them. This includes a personal assessment of your communication style and competencies, a set of eight dimensions for successful communication, suggestions on how you can improve competencies that are not in your core set of communication strengths, and techniques for leveraging and building on your strengths. Exercises help you gain an understanding of yourself and strive for balanced communication techniques through recognition of both your strengths and your “development opportunities” when it comes to live communication.
