Learning the basics of communication is key to having productive conversations. This includes active listening, giving feedback, and identifying stakeholders. But is that enough to really get your ideas heard and gain traction?
No, says Dr. Nicole Tschierske. We can’t stop there. If we want to rally people around our ideas, we need to go beyond the basics. Now we get into choice of words, desired outcomes, tone, timing, and more, to help us engage and convince our audience.
If you’re ready to go to the next level with your communication, give this episode of People at Work a listen. If we all communicate with clear purpose as Nicole suggests, perhaps we’d get more done and be happier at the same time.
