Communication Detours

October 14, 2017

 

Communication detours wreck teamwork. Many communication accidents can be avoided by driving more mindfully around potential potholes or conflicts. What are the solutions you can use to avoid relationship meltdowns?

 

 

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWNS—STAYING ENGAGED

TO AVOID CONFLICTUAL COLLISIONS

 

The five root causes and solutions of communication failures:

 

1) WRONG TONE OF VOICE. Too loud or snarky or too soft and wishy-washy that clogs up listening ears.

 

Solutions: Pay attention to setting the tone when you walk into a room. Know your audience (Empathizer vs. Instigator) and appeal to them. Take time to properly plan and articulate your message.

 

2) FEAR OF FAILURE. Mad about a time crunch. Worrying about: “What IF this messes up?!”

 

Solutions: Start off with positivity. Jump right into it. Reset your positive attitude as you go through your day. Don’t let fear of screwing up freeze you up.

 

3) DISTRACTIONS. Anything that takes your attention away from giving 100%.
