“We need to communicate better” is a common complaint in many workplaces. What does this mean? Sometimes it is difficult to put into words where the gap is between the way we want things to be and the way things really are. It often has something to do with others understanding the “important” things and our understanding of what is important to someone else. Sometimes it is a desire for more clarity on where the heck we should be headed and how we can help each other get there.

There are many critical behaviors that lead to improved communication. Avoiding conflict is one of the top concerns expressed by supervisors. Come participate in a discussion of four key principles that are at the foundation of establishing and improving communication across workplaces, at home, everywhere.
