I had the pleasure of being a presenter at a conference sponsored by the MI Society of Government Meeting Planners in Grand Rapids MI. The topic was The New Normal: Doing More with Less. The main idea was to reduce conflict in the workplace by improving communication skills. Thanks to Andy Silver, The Director of Training for MI Department of Community Health, who helped me understand the needs of the audience which helped me customize the program to their needs.
The following is a list of 3 questions for you to ask yourself and share with your team to discover how you can improve your working c0ndition and decrease conflict in the workplace:
1. What systems do you use to identify what is important to whom and when?
2. How do you weed out or stop things that are not working and recharge with new program alignment?
3. What barriers are hindering you from creating a positive work environment?
The answers to these questions are a good way for you to improve your working condition and reduce conflict in the workplace. Your team can improve communication skills by coming up with new ideas on how to do more with less.
Please share your answers with me and I will respond because I enjoy connecting with my loyal readers!
Below are 2 short video testimonials that describe how Doris Sims from the Greater Lansing CVB and Mona Murphy from Flint Area CVB enjoyed the session.
