Bridging the Communication Gap: Communicating with Others Who Don’t Communicate Like You (CS #54)
Despite the ever-present illusion of connectivity via an abundance of device and media options, communication continues to be a challenge for even the most seasoned, educated, and experienced professionals.
Bridging the Communication Gap addresses the human variables that can have an adverse impact on communication across functions, organizational layers, conference tables, labs and smart phones. Since communication styles affect all aspects of human interaction and organizational performance, knowledge of their characteristics and impact is key to productive relations inside and outside the workplace. Communication styles are the focus of Bridging the Communication Gap.
