- Is energy being wasted on extra meetings, repetitive communications, or misinterpretations due to a failure to listen well?
- Are there difficult or challenging conversations that are being avoided?
- Are you forming a new team, launching a new initiative, or ready to go from good to great and wish to create a strong foundation of effective communication skills?
George Bernard Shaw said "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion it has taken place." Yet we are rarely taught how to communicate well. Miscommunications are all too common and waste time and energy, costing organizations dearly.
At BlueSky Project, we believe that some of the greatest communicators are ones who listen deeply, to both the spoken and unspoken message. They are able to deliver difficult or complicated messages in a respectful and direct way, leaving them with more energy to focus on what's important.
In our work together we share practices that will help participants to listen and speak more effectively so they can work better together and focus their energy on meeting goals and producing results. You will have a deeper understanding of the perspective of others resulting in increased empathy, stronger relationships and improved ability to work through disagreements or solve problems.
