Using Written Communication to Impact and Inspire Employees
Great communication has always played a key role in great relationships.
But with most of us lacking face-to-face communication at work within the past year, you might notice relationships like HR-to-employees, manager-to-employee, or colleague-to-colleague, are more distant and there’s increasing miscommunication.
Poor employee communications not only can cost your company millions of dollars, but it also results in loss of morale and increased levels of employee stress and frustration.
Now more than ever, your written communications need to be clear and impactful - whether it’s a long email, short direct message, texts, etc. Your language should inspire trust and respect from your employees. Communication is truly an invaluable skill to have, especially in the current heavy remote work environments.
In this 60-minute workshop, you will learn how you can tailor your business writing to:
- Develop quality relationships for team success
- Discover new ways of working and solving problems together
- Demonstrate behavior that meets the related need at the right time
- Drive the conversation by using effective AQ (Adaptability Quotient) tools
