Communicating Across Agendas:
Hear Through the Noise
Communication is challenging even with people with whom we share common goals and ideals. In all communities (factories, workplaces, firms, & board rooms) there are challenges of cultural difference, complex power dynamics, and often the perception of conflicting goals. When we perceive ourselves as being on opposing sides of a situation, communication becomes more tense and loaded, and misunderstandings are quick to escalate.
Focus your team’s time and energy on clear communication, establishing common goals and definitions, and anchoring interactions in dignity and respect.
