In your head, your message is crystal clear and compelling. But somehow what comes out of your mouth isn’t landing with your audience. What’s going on there?
Often, getting our voice heard, plugging our brilliant idea, or getting budget approval, is not so much about the content of the message. Rather, our success depends on the way we deliver the message. In the multicultural, diverse world that we live in everyday, we need to be mindful of the fact that we all communicate differently and that we have our (sometimes unconscious) preferences on how to be communicated to.
The first step to mastering what sometimes seems like a minefield is to get very aware of our own communication style. How do we communicate? What is the effect on others? And then, the second step is to be more conscious about the communication needs our audience has.
With diversity engrained in her own journey, Sahar has experienced first hand the impact communication has on our ability to win the support and commitment of others and create impact for the projects and messages dear to our heart. In this Lunchtime Love Session, she will share with us a simple first step to understand our own communication style better.
