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.

It’s easy to laugh at a boss’s mistakes. But don’t be so quick to assume you could do a better job.
If your team readily reaches consensus on a tough issue, that’s a bad sign.
Front-line workers notice when you don’t address them by name.
As you start to dicker over numbers, mention how you’ve sealed similar deals.
Ask each employee for the name of a family member or friend so you can spread good news.
Even if you love your job, you may still want to pursue your dreams.
Should you change your slovenly ways to fit in with health nut bosses?
Should you fill out an anonymous survey with answers that trash your company?
