Workplace Communication

In an era of Casual Fridays and work-from-home colleagues, how can you maintain effective office communication in a changing business climate?

We’ll steer you through changes in business etiquette, and help you successfully navigate through the new realities of workplace conflict and office politics.

Here’s a persuasive strategy that few managers use: two-sided argumentation.
The ability to express your ideas freely, succinctly and tactfully marks you as a leader.
If your employees dread delivering bad news in person, they may call you instead. By accepting what they say with relative calm, you encourage them to reveal more information and propose solutions.
When colleagues and staff ask you for favors, you may dread saying no.
Plan to end around lunch time, and take everyone out.
Even if you’re loaded with talent and ambition, your career path will stall if you take everything personally.
Executive recruiters are great sources of scuttlebutt.
Many bigwigs prefer pros who can balance their work and personal lives.
A short fuse can kill a career.
When you’re in a new situation, force yourself to enjoy it—even if you secretly yearn for a safer, easier past.
