Breaking Down the Communication Barrier: Learn principles & strategies to breakdown communication barriers, overcome resistance and resolve conflict!

Even though communication is the lifeblood of any organization, it’s almost impossible to find a company, department or team that doesn’t have a communication breakdown or barrier at one time or another.

And poor workplace communication leads to more than just individual frustration. It causes conflict; it contributes to low morale; it makes finishing even the easiest of tasks difficult – which ultimately leads to decreased productivity, lower results and diminished success.

Do any of these situations sound familiar?

  • You have trouble working with or communicating with people in other departments.
  • Employees feel isolated or disconnected and team morale is low.
  • Performance isn’t where it should be or turnover is high and you’re not sure how to have that difficult conversation about how to fix it.
  • You find yourself saying, this is more difficult than it needs to be. Or maybe, they’re not hearing what I’m telling them.

Yep. Your communications aren’t communicating what you intended.

In this audio presentation, I will reveal the principles and strategies that you need to open up communication, break down the barriers and improve your work environment. With clear communication, you’ll eliminate negative attitudes, improve relationships, increase job satisfaction and measurably impact productivity. Because when people are free from conflict and confusion, they can focus on what’s really important.

You’ll learn:

  • Common communication barriers – and principles for overcoming them
  • What causes defensiveness and what you can do to avoid it before it occurs
  • Threat triggers – how to identify them and strategies for resolving them
  • Communication and negotiation principles to help you reach agreement and open the lines of communication
  • A model for understanding what drives people to move towards you or away from you in your interactions
