Civil Communication – When Leadership Stakes are High

Civil Communication – When the Leadership Stakes are High

“The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

~ George Bernard Shaw

A common breakdown when communicating during a conflict is the result of trying to read people’s minds or expecting them to read yours. Mind reading is often incorrect, and often harms the relationship. During any communication when the stakes are high, the goal is to express your ideas and needs in a way that will make others want to respond nicely. This is the essence of civil, tolerant communication.

Consider the traditional formula for career and leadership success as cognitive intelligence, an analytical, detached decision style, often at people and not with people. Most important, you did not show emotional sensitivity, you were not transparent so people knew what you really meant and you did not focus on understanding others first to build rapport. However, to achieve great and meaningful careers requires SMARTER Skills and SMARTER Emotions!
The SMARTER skills of social and emotional intelligence are the ability to intentionally understand and manage social interactions and our emotional impact skillfully. The key word in the above sentence is “intentionality”. Working smarter is intentionally being aware of the impact you are having on others and adjusting your style to get the best results with people and not through people.
During this program you learn about the research that led to seven SMARTER Positive Emotions Every Employer Wants and Every Employee Needs.  You will gain skills to train the brain for more “AHa” moments to evolve your career, and less “Oh No” moments that de- rail your career.   You will receive a free SMARTER Emotions assessment and several techniques to move from smart to SMARTER.
