All day, every day, teams rely on communication to get work done. But teams are made up of people—and people are human. That means teams will struggle with communication at some point in time. And that’s why it’s important for them to foster greater awareness of their own communication preferences and to exercise their capabilities for advocacy and inquiry. This way, communication becomes more than a process for transferring information; it becomes an important source of learning, transformation, and innovation.
Join subject matter experts Susan Gerke and David Hutchens for their upcoming live webinar, GO Communicate!: Exploring and Improving How Your Teams Interact. They’ll offer fresh ways to help you address the communication challenges your teams encounter through increasing both dialogue skills and self-awareness. Based on the work of Dr. Linda Berens, they’ll explore two unique lenses for communication: the “advocacy and inquiry” model and “directing and informing” style differences.
