I was thrilled to help organize a two-part training series to 1) help leaders break through communication barriers, and 2) provide communication tips for overcoming workplace conflicts.

Have you ever …

  • Received feedback that you need to be more “strategic” or specific?
  • Struggled to get your point across in team meetings?
  • Been frustrated that no one seems to hear you or acknowledge your ideas?
  • Tried to cope with a rude and insensitive coworker?
  • Been angry with a team member who always changes their mind?

Chances are, you answered yes to at least one of these questions. We’ve all been there. Communication can be challenging, especially in the workplace, yet it plays a fundamental role in our daily lives.

A huge thank you to Julie Schaller, a longtime friend of Simplicity and cofounder of Empower Coaching, for sharing her time and knowledge with our community.

Why it matters

The art of communicating effectively at work is a barrier for many professionals, especially in this increasingly digital era. It can cost you the promotion of your dreams, a life-changing deal, or career advancement.

For some, good communication comes naturally, but for others, it can be challenging to articulate their thoughts and feelings in conversation, often leading to conflicts and fundamental mistakes. Whether you are an effective communicator or not, it is essential to understand the importance of effective communication and how it can help you progress in the world of work. This is especially true for professionals in marketing and business management where effective comms ensure that teams work together and are in line with the company's objectives, giving others a sense of belonging and resulting in increased performance, constant innovation, and brand advocacy.
