A Balanced Attack: Creating and Enhancing a Communication Skill Set in the Workplace
Modern technological advancements have supposedly made today's communication much easier, but in reality, they have isolated many of us. A balance between excessive online behavior and interpersonal interactions (actually eyeballing and talking to people) is imperative. Research and data demonstrate an unprecedented number of people (including kids ages 12-26) are suffering from loneliness, depression, detachment, and anxiety that correlates with the spike in social media use over the last decade. We now interact at warp speed, but the question I pose to you is: Do we communicate effectively?
In this session, I'll provide the answers to how you can reemerge from these communication barriers we have inadvertently created in this remarkable digital era. I will also challenge you to do something that is a life changer!
After this session, you'll be able to:
- Communicate more effectively as an individual and part of a team (in both the work space and socially)
- Utilize the keys to a healthy and productive co-existence with modern technology
- Prepare for and combat the fear associated with A.I. (artificial intelligence) and other technology that could have big impacts on the way we communicate and interact with each other
