We thank Lisa Partidge who is the Training Consultant from Sixcomms and Mark Oliver who is the Learning and Development Consultant from Octopus Professional Development for taking their time to hone our communication skills in the new hybrid workplace environment.
Here are some takeaways that we have received from the event:
- Model the way: take the initiative to turn on your camera and request for others to do so too!
- Clarity: be clear on your objective, meeting agenda and be mindful of others’ time.
- Don’t make assumptions: ask clarifying questions for open-ended discussions
- Empathy: Have more patience and compassion for one another. Make an effort to connect on a personal level
